Ready for some serious post-Easter daydreaming? If eco-retreats in paradise are totally your thing, you'll love Port Douglas' Thala Beach Nature Reserve – a previously clear-felled sugarcane plantation that's been lovingly restored and rejuvenated over the past thirty years. Now a bustling home to hundreds of species of wildlife, guests can soak up sea breezes and forest views from their own personal treehouse. Head to the blog to see more and start visualising yourself in a hammock in three... two... one...

Happy Easter! Did anyone buy or receive any ethical eggs this year? We don't want to take the shine off your tinsel-wrapped treats, but it's estimated that over two million children are engaged in child labour in cocoa plantations, with most of them trafficked. Luckily there are an increasing number of great brands making fair trade and ethically-produced Easter eggs and chocolate products. Or you could always DIY! If you haven't already eaten your body weight in chocolate today, how about whipping up some of your own. We found this recipe on the website of our friends at @loving_earth - strawberry vegan cheesecake mousse filled eggs topped with berries and nuts. It's almost healthy - we recommend having it for dinner. You're welcome.

As the second largest polluter in the world, the clothing industry already has a huge black mark against its name. For the people working in the factories that feed a global fast fashion addiction, the impact's felt a lot closer to home. New, self-shot films from the factory floor give a previously unseen view into the physical and financial hardships facing those who work in stifling conditions, including a graphic look at coining – a process whereby workers scrape colleagues' skin with coins in order to cool them down. Short, difficult and essential viewing in the run up to Fashion Revolution Week, which kicks off on 24 April. Visit the link in our bio for more.

In a forgotten corner of Brisbane lies a little-known wonderland of creativity. Known as HackerSpace Brisbane, or HSBNE for short, the workshop's part of the nationwide hackerspace movement – inspiring community spaces where creatives and makers gather to fix, mend and upcycle broken down bits and bobs. At our most recent PepTalks event in Brisbane, HSBNE president Steph Piper wowed the crowd to win our one-minute Peppermint Pitch competition, and bagged $300 in the process. Head to the link in our profile to read about HSBNE’s positive impact – and find out how you could be in with a chance of winning a Peppermint Pitch at one of our upcoming PepTalks. 💚
