A wonderful new publication has hit the shelves, Australia’s very first eco fashion mag, and it rocks!
Made from 100% recycled, uncoated paper this uber cool mag is a welcome addition to any newsagents. Not only does it feature, recycled, organic and eco fashion, it has thought provoking articles about the environment and the people that live in it (us). One such person, is the very green Soleil Moon Frye (aka Punky Brewster) who’s natural baby boutique is a mecca of all things eco-stylish for bubs.
Peppermint’s focus on the artisans community is fantastic, with eco art pieces and competitions.
I think the icing on the cake is the ‘make a blouse out of an old shirt ‘ pattern.
All in all Peppermint is a well laid out piece of art and I urge you all to get a subscribtion while there still hot!!!

Well, after counting millions (i exaggerate) shirts, putting seeds in packets, photographing bubba’s (very tiring) and sending orders to stores, eco peko’s new range is up and running! The response has been fantastic ( i was in a store the other day, showing samples to the store manager and a customer came up and brought one from the counter!), and why wouldn’t it
For part of the success, I wanted to thank the very talented Tim Pritchard of ‘Aarfie’ , he made an anxiety building chore to a walk in a park (on a sun dappled field of brilliant yellow daisies…yes, he is that good!). I speak of building my website. The genius that is Tim, is displayed on this very easily navigated site. He understood my concept and gave me more than I could have expected. He gave me insite to the world of blogs, search engines and online shops. He made adjustments instantly and has since helped me with e-forms. I cannot recommend him enough (he’s open for business in August 2009, at www.aarfie.com) and will answer any questions about his services at email@example.com.
I also wanted to thank my friend and Levi’s girlfriends mum Kiely. Not only has she listened to me rabbit on about eco peko constantly, she took photo’s of lots of budding super models in eco peko attire. She even photographed us marching in the ‘Say No to GMO’ rally and breast fed on the steps of Government house (you go girl). Kiely is also the artist behind my eco baby range. She drew the cute baby holding a beetroot, saving water and saying no to plastic. I also wanted to thank my sister and my friend’s Nicole, Judy and Alex, for lending an ear when asked. And last but not least my partner in crime John for helping me to see reason and not get carried away and for listening to me for the millionth time about eco peko……oh and also the Academy….
