Peppermint Magazine  style • sustainability • substance 🍃 a print magazine available across Australia, internationally and online

If you love @mrspress as much as us (and hey, who doesn't?!) then you'll LOVE her take on diversity in fashion that we just published exclusively over on our website. And if that's just not enough Clare for your day, may we suggest you catch up on every single episode of her Wardrobe Crisis podcast right now – yep, abandon your day job and settle in for some outstanding listening on all things ethical fashion. With season two well underway, that's a whole lot of inspirational awesomeness for your ears. Enjoy! [📷 of the excellent @2sydneystylists - Edgar Mzumara]

Morning, friends! We’re loving this capture of Issue 38 by @page1_longjetty - have you snapped up *your* copy yet?

I don’t think we could sum up the night any better! 🙌🏼 Thanks SO MUCH to all who helped make this night so special - our speakers, attendees, volunteers and our partners. THANK YOU! ❤️ #Repost @drrebeccaray

Last night, I attended my first speaking gig since Bennett’s birth. I care deeply about all my speaking opportunities, but this one was for my favourite magazine @peppermintmagazine, and because I love the Peppermint Team and Peppermint readers are one hundred and fifty percent *my people*, the stakes felt HIGH.
::
I mean, I was speaking alongside the likes of @timsilverwood of @take3forthesea and Clare Press @mrspress, hosted by Leah @unmaterialgirl who has an effervescence that I want to bottle.
::
Yep, no reason to be nervous at all.
::
It’s fair to say that I was petrified.
::
And it’s fair to say that I didn’t want to get on a stage in front of 200 shining souls with sleep-deprived eyes and pregnancy-rolly-polly-ness from the neck down.
::
But I did get on that stage.
::
And you know how a collective of like-minded people can create an almost other-worldly vibe? That’s the space I was welcomed into. The kind of space where messages are more important than make up and vulnerability is a precious resource.
::
To all of you who listened last night: Thank you for your time and the soft place to land as I find my feet and voice again.
Thank you for coming with me into a story and back out the other side.
Thank you for your willingness and appetite for conversations of substance.
Thank you for getting it.
And thank you for approaching me afterwards to make sure I knew you got it.
::
These are the experiences that nourish me. You and me and connecting beyond screens with hands that touch and faces that recognise kindred hearts.
::
Thank you for seeing me, @kelleysheenan @becjamiesondwyer, Roxane @alexandriamain, @helendewar_ @zoeleebeingme -Peppermint Magazine is clearly as brilliant as it is because it’s birthed from each of you.

WORLD OCEANS DAY // Protecting our beautiful oceans is critical. They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe. Scientists estimate up to 12 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans every year - that’s a rubbish truck full every minute. Plastic pollution costs the lives of one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals annually. The World Economic Forum estimates that by 2050, plastic in the ocean will match the weight of fish. One of the biggest offenders is plastic bottles - we’re currently using one million plastic bottles worldwide per minute! Up to 91% of all plastic is not recycled and it can take 100s of years to biodegrade (mostly just breaking into smaller pieces in the oceans where marine animals ingest it or mistake it for food, then we eat those fish). How many years do plastic items take to biodegrade?
- Plastic bag: 20
- Straw: 200
- Nappy: 450
- Plastic bottle: 450
- Six-pack beer holder: 450
- Fishing line: 600

Say no to single use wherever possible. Pick up rubbish from the beach. Carry reusable options with you. Avoid micro plastics. Protect our oceans. #worldoceansday #saveouroceans (📷 @grumpyturtledesign - currently featured in a story about straws in our latest issue)

PEPTALKS // As if hearing from @mrspress @timsilverwood and @drrebeccaray while enjoying a glass of wine from @yealands and a gluten-free baked treat from @nododonuts isn’t enough, all attendees will take home a natural lipstick from @ereperezcosmetics and an organic eye shadow or blush from @nveyeco_official thanks to our lovely friends at natural beauty store @conscious.kin 🙌🏼 (We’ve just added 10 more tickets after selling out - get in quick!) #pmpeptalks #consciouskin #naturalskincare #ereperez #nveyeco

School excursion today for the team to @biomestores for a DIY workshop run by @unmaterialgirl - so fun! We all came away with our own beautiful flower petal bath soak, clay face mask and a shea butter body whip. Zero waste skincare made by hand is beauty at its best! 🌸 (P.S the lovely Leah is MC-ing at PepTalks next week 🎤🙌🏼) #diybeauty #workrocks

Need a bit of a boost for hump day? We’re going to say YES PLEASE to this fair trade, organic 70% Dark Salt & Malt Chocolate from @alterecopacific (and if you happen to be coming to our PepTalks event next week, you’ll be getting one of these in your goodie bag 👌🏼🍫) YUM! #fairtradechocolate #organicchocolate #pmpeptalks

It’s #worldenvironmentday - the day we take a moment to think about ways we can protect this green and blue dot we call home. This year’s theme is #beatplasticpollution - and with the EU’s recent proposal to ban the top ten single-use plastic products (including cotton buds, cutlery and straws), progress *is* happening - but we can all do our bit to help stop the plague of plastic. Whether it’s saying no to a straw, taking your jars to the bulk-produce store or remembering that reusable coffee cup in the morning, every little change can make a difference - and we’d love to know your top tips for cutting plastic right out of your everyday life.
