Hip hip hooray, it’s our 10th birthdaaaaay, and boy do we have an issue for you!
This not-to-be-missed bumper edition is chock-a-block full of loveliness: think wise words on hope from activist and author Glennon Doyle, comedian and mental health campaigner Mike King and other leading voices; a chat about sustainable fashion with “fast-fashion addict turned slow-fashion activist” Leah Musch, aka The Unmaterial Girl; 10 lists of 10 to inspire you (books to read, docos to watch, eco voices to follow, ways to green your wardrobe and more); plus five awesome art prints to cut out and keep from our faves Lisa Congdon, Frances Cannon, Nicole Berlach, Lauren Merrick and Tess Guinery.
There’s a story about Tamil Feasts, an asylum-seeker run social enterprise sharing curry to foster conversations and community; a feature on the inspirational author and motivational speaker Turia Pitt; a look inside the sustainable floristry industry (hint – it’s as beautiful as you’d expect); an investigation into modern slavery – why it’s a bigger problem than ever before and what we can do about it; and a roundup of incredible youth activists making waves across the world.
And when it comes to reducing your waste, we’ve got you covered: with ideas for a zero-waste kitchen (that don’t involve chucking out all your old plastic containers and replacing them with shiny new jars), a roundup of zero-waste period alternatives, and an illustrated guide to regrowing veggies from the scraps you’d usually throw out.
Plus there’s advice on how not to feel overwhelmed by the world’s problems, stylish sewing with Ada Spragg, a roundup of the best reusable bags, a recycled t-shirt tote DIY you’ll actually want to make, a free button-up dress pattern that might just be your new wardrobe fave, plus plenty more to inspire you.
