Founder, publisher and editor-in-chief Kelley Sheenan started Peppermint way back in 2008, when sustainable was still far from becoming a mainstream buzzword. As a former graphic and fashion designer, Kelley decided to bridge the gap between sustainability and style – almost ten years later, Peppermint is now the leading sustainable fashion and lifestyle magazine in Australia and beyond. Still based in beautiful Brisbane, Australia, the magazine remains resolutely independent – successful because of a focus on building an authentically connected community through inspirational storytelling and beautiful imagery.
Founder / Designer / Editor-in-chief
Kelley combines her editing, design and publishing skills to create every issue of Peppermint. With her keen eye for detail and passion for ethics and sustainability, she’s dedicated to providing a platform that shares the stories of people doing good in the world.
Desta has spent the last 13 years working as a journalist and content writer covering all things lifestyle, sustainability, culture and travel. Her days at Peppermint magazine are filled with managing the editorial calendar, chatting to inspirational people doing great things for the world, and working with the talented freelancers that contribute to the magazine.
