We tell the stories of people doing good in the world

Peppermint is an Australian quarterly print magazine focused on style, sustainability and substance. Covering slow food, ethical fashion, natural living, health and beauty, diversity, social entrepreneurs and more, it was created for the rapidly growing number of individuals who appreciate good design and creativity, but also care about social and environmental issues and things that matter.

With diverse, carefully curated content and beautiful photography – including fashion profiles and shoots, inspiring and informative editorials, and thought-provoking, behind-the-scenes features – Peppermint is a celebration of all that’s good in our changing world.

As a small, independent publication, we tell real stories with authenticity and passion. Each issue is designed to give hope and empower you to live a better, more meaningful and more authentic life. Peppermint is designed to be read, loved and cherished – laid out on a coffee table, lovingly stored on a bookshelf as part of a collection or passed onto a friend in need of inspiration. And in this fast-paced world, we feature slow, timeless content that endures – so you can take joy from each issue for many years to come.

Each issue of Peppermint is printed in Australia on PEFC-certified paper at an FSC-certified printer and is 100% carbon neutral. We’re committed to giving back by donating to charity through our Fashion Cents program in every issue, and have supported a number of local and international organisations including Save the Children, The Butterfly Foundation, SecondBite and BlinkNow.

We believe in good people. We believe that style and sustainability can go hand in hand. We believe that positive media is key to creating change.

If uncertainty was renamed possibility, how would you show up differently?”⁠

  • "It all started when a fellow folk artist gave me two crocheted poodle bottle-covers for my birthday many years ago, and said, “You should collect these.” I wasn’t that on board with the idea, but I put them on my shelf and quickly found companion poodles at a yard sale days later. I guess that’s how collections start – similar things look good together and they magnetise more, and soon you have a large collection of crochet poodles in your bathroom you have to build a special shelf for. Then you move to Kansas City, Missouri, and, well, they have really good estate sales and thrift stores full of cute crochet animals, so you build a bigger shelf and you jokingly call it the Crochet Museum. Then later, as the collection grows, you somehow end up with an old photo kiosk that used to be a drive-through one-hour photo-processing building, and your new boyfriend just bought a complex with apartments and stores and garages in Joshua Tree that would make the perfect home for it. And you always liked the idea of calling it ‘world famous’ for fun, so you call it the World Famous Crochet Museum and the next thing you know you have a roadside attraction."⁠

In the Californian desert town of Joshua Tree, maker @Shari.Elf is on a mission to turn unloved items into treasured works of art – sharing her passion through her World Famous Crochet Museum and studio. Read more in issue 45, on sale now (free delivery in Australia from our website!).⁠

She may be the Prime Minister of another country, but she's certainly queen of our hearts. What is the best thing you can do right now to help #flattenthecurve? Stay home. How can you help protect your family, your community and the most vulnerable amongst us? Stay home. How best can we support our frontline heroes, the healthcare workers, food suppliers and all those who are risking their lives to protect and support us?⁠
Please - stay home. 🙏🏽⁠

  • Dorsu needs our help! The clothing manufacturer creates ethically made garments from their studio in Kampot, Cambodia – providing fair and safe working conditions for their team of 30. We're so sad to hear that @dorsu_cambodia have made the difficult decision to close their retail stores and to scale back production to try and stay afloat. ⁠
⁠
Ethical youth t-shirt brand HUMIFORM, who produce through Dorsu, has launched a campaign to help them continue their incredible work by aiming to preorder 200 of their ethically-made tees – each featuring a climate activism illustration, designed by young people. ⁠Find all the deets to support this campaign over at @humiformofficial⁠.⁠

  • Home is where the health is…⁠
