I often get asked what my plans were for Peppermint in the beginning, and it’s a hard one to answer without embellishment. I’d love to say I had lofty plans and ambitious strategies for the future of my media empire, but that would be less than truthful (okay, a downright lie). Looking back, I probably should have had more in my back pocket than the plan to fly by the seat of my pants, but the reality is I’m not a ‘five-year plan’ kinda gal. I’m not saying I don’t have goals or aspirations – that’s different – but when it comes to pinpointing exactly where I want to be in the distant future, I’ll just get through today, thanks very much. Today is really all we have, right? I…

kirralee & co

I like to think that the thoughtfulness in design and material choice I put into each piece is what draws people in Each one had this beautiful curve to it, and the Robinsons – who were already exploring sustainable design by building their own dining table from reclaimed materials – were instantly captivated. So they sliced and sawed and sanded away, eventually creating a series of elegantly minimalist hanging wall vases. And just like that Kirralee & Co was born. It wasn’t a complete career deviation, for Kirralee at least. The 30-year-old has worked as a florist for years, dabbles in woodworking as a part-time picture framer and also has a “severe addiction to making things with my own hands”. She also had easy access to a shed full of tools, thanks…

Caterina Sullivan doesn’t think so – but to make these goals a reality in less than two decades’ time, we all need to get involved. Caterina explains how The Global Goals movement works and what we can do to help. When did you first get involved with The Global Goals? In July last year, I had the chance to work in New York for three months to help launch The Global Goals through a 60,000-people concert in Central Park. The concert headliners were Beyoncé, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran and Pearl Jam. We had over 20 heads of state from all over the world come…
