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.

  • "People who live and work closest to the natural environment are the first to feel the true impacts of climate change. I can look out my kitchen window and see a dust storm ripping through our paddock. I can walk among our farm’s ancient river red gum trees, which are now dying because it’s so dry these days. These trees have survived over 500 years and are screaming out that something’s wrong. Farmers are the canary in the coalmine...⁠
⁠
Although farmers make up less than one percent of the population in Australia, we grow 93% of the food consumed here. So the impact of climate change on farming production is very real for everyone. We need policymakers to realise the seriousness of what’s happening out here and take action, because this impacts everyone – everyone who eats food, wears clothes, operates in our economy and cherishes these beautiful landscapes."⁠
⁠
Anika Molesworth helped form ‘Farmers for Climate Action’ and is a farmer, researcher and speaker based on her family’s Broken Hill sheep station. To read more from Anika, who spoke at the recent National Climate Emergency Summit, grab a copy of Issue 44 – only on sale for one more week.⁠

  • Global warming, plastic pollution, societal inequality, female education in the developing world, the plight of asylum seekers, animal rights – whatever you’re passionate about, there’s a cause that could use your voice.⁠
⁠
It’s been said that we’re now entering Generation ‘A’ – the era of the activist. People are starting to understand that, to truly create change, we have no choice but to make activism part of the fabric of our daily lives.⁠
⁠
For many, the term ‘activist’ will conjure images of people marching down city streets with placards or chained to trees; but while these more radical acts of civil disobedience are admirable, they are certainly not the only ways to be heard. In these modern times, we've looked at some alternative ways to use our choices and voices to drive change. To discover our seven acts of everyday activism, created with our friends at Bank Australia @bankaust, head to the blog!⁠

  • We love our wardrobes but do our wardrobes love the planet? It’s a sad truth that the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. To help us understand how our fashion choices contribute to climate change, @thredup – the world’s largest online secondhand shop – has released an interactive online calculator that helps you determine your fashion footprint. ⁠
⁠
With an aim of educating consumers about the carbon impacts of their clothing habits, the quiz reveals the total amount of carbon your closet generates annually and how this compares to the average consumer, all while providing tips on how to reduce your footprint.⁠
⁠
To learn about the quiz and find out how green your wardrobe really is, head to the blog!⁠

Change is progress; it builds resilience and helps you adapt to new situations, and takes you places you’ve never been.
