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.

  • It's the time of year when many of us begin frantically prepping for the start of the school term – and in a sea of uniforms, chair bags and seemingly endless booklists, giving thought to the humble lunch can be quite low on the priority list. But that's where we come in, friends! We've sharpened our pencils, opened our exercise books and come up with a handy list of eco-hacks (plus a tasty recipe) that'll help your little changemaker live their very best, planet-friendly playground life.⁠
Head to our website to find out how to make these delicious chocolate banana muesli bars that will have little (and big) hands reaching for more!⁠

  • Creative positive action!!!⁠ ✊🏻✊🏽✊🏾⁠
Newkind is a conference for social change, designed to inspire and empower to effectively address the social, environmental and economic issues we face as a global society. Based in Tasmania, the five day volunteer-run, not-for-profit program that runs from January 29th - 2nd February, brings together a fascinating line-up of academics, activists, thought leaders and inspirational educators. The event founders say "We’re focused on establishing socio-economic justice, while pushing the boundaries of sustainable event design. We minimise and measure our environmental footprint, report and share our findings, and empower the future changemakers of our society."⁠
It's a truly stellar line-up, beautifully curated with impactful content. We can't wait to hear the positive action that comes out of it!⁠

  • "Imposter Syndrome’s my best friend! Especially with the Adobe residency, I’m constantly somehow finding myself in rooms with people I’d never expect to meet in a million years. I have this constant feeling that they’ve sent the email to the wrong person. Or that someone’s going to realise and tap me on the shoulder and say, “Actually, we didn’t want you for the residency. We meant this other person.” It’s just one of those things that you just have to go with the flow, although I know that’s so much easier said than done. I am fortunate that because I’m so busy, I don’t really have the time to sit and freak out about it, which is a really nice problem to have. But yeah, Imposter Syndrome’s something I deal with every day, without exception."⁠

  • Many local businesses in (or surrounded by) fire zones, are experiencing tough times right now, when it’s normally their busiest time of the year. Bushfire survivor @turiapitt has launched a campaign to help these companies - @spendwiththem, inspired by @buyfromthebush, another IG campaign created last year to help drought-stricken communities. You can check out roadtripforgood.org.au to find areas that have registered that they’re back open for business, so you can plan your #roadtripforgood. There is also the @emptyesky initiative, a movement of foodies and adventurers supporting local businesses affected by the #australianfires. Visit them with your #emptyesky!

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