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.

  • The community and mental health elements of Groove Therapy classes are central to Vanessa’s understanding of dance and how it can bring people together and, quite simply, make us feel better. Most of us are familiar with the obvious health benefits of dancing, since it’s a physical activity that gets us moving – but it has plenty to offer on a mental and spiritual level, too. “Regularly attending any sort of extra-curricular activity means you can meet people and become part of a community, which is really important for keeping a healthy headspace,” Vanessa points out. “Dance is a means of non-verbal self-expression, and expressing yourself is pivotal for those going through a mental health crisis. It’s a screen-free activity. It gets you out of your head and into your body.” It can also help us stay mentally fit – dancing builds the white matter in the hippocampus region of our brains, which governs learning, memory and balance. If an apple a day is supposed to keep the doctor away, a dance a day could help stave off the effects of an ageing brain, Vanessa explains. “I could honestly keep going but you’re convinced, right?” she jokes. “Go have a boogie by yourself right now.”

This year I’ve committed to myself to read more, it’s something I love but just haven’t had the time (or the energy) to do it for years! Today I’m making time for it to happen... starting with one of my favourites, @peppermintmagazine

This is a little stop motion clip I made yesterday. It’s the first time I’ve ever tried anything like this and I had so much fun! It’s slightly rough around the edges, but for a first attempt I’m pretty happy with it! This is my entry to this weeks @creativelysquared challenge #cs_inmotion #maketime #peppermintmagazine

We need to change apathy into empathy, indifference into empowerment and anger into action. This is the most important job of our time.
