“When both mother and baby were naked, stripped back, untainted and intertwined with nature – nothing else matters but suddenly everything matters” Naked, stripped back, untainted, intertwined with nature… our stunning cover for this issue (shot by photographer Tamara Dean) beautifully highlights the simplicity of the human condition: beneath it all, we really are all one. Creating our piece on Global Rituals helped reinforce this for me – regardless of cultural, geographical or religious backgrounds, rituals have always played a crucial role in our lives. While, historically, they were often grounded in spiritual practices, they usually have common threads that are relevant – and important – to all of us: happiness, health, love, forgiveness, thankfulness, connection, community and a general knowing and desire for oneness. Rituals mark important events, highlight our similarities, celebrate…

we love hearing from you, dear readers.

ecotan.com.au GET IN TOUCH AT HELLO@PEPPERMINTMAG.COM dear peppermint Dearest Peppermint, I’ve been enjoying you for many years, but for a while now my beautiful Ouma would nab a copy from her local newsagent before I had a chance to grab one myself. She’d have it waiting for when I visited, my name scrawled in her beautiful and loving hand-writing on the cover. She passed away very recently. I’ll treasure the copies she gifted me and will think of her every time I get a new issue and snuggle up on the couch with a warm tea, ready to dive into its pages. Thank you for giving me a ritual of sorts to remember her by – from now on when I read you, my heart will feel extra, extra full. – Sheridan Dear Peppermint, I’d only just…

Tell us about the podcast… Green Dreamer is a podcast for those dreaming of a thriving planet. It explores all facets of sustainability and regeneration, with thought leaders including Adrian Grenier of Lonely Whale Foundation, Bea Johnson of Zero Waste Home and Orsola de Castro of Fashion Revolution. What inspired you to get started? When I saw how sustainability’s doom and gloom and impossible ideals were making people feel discouraged, overwhelmed and burnt out (myself included) – often leading to apathy or inaction from self-doubt – it was really disheartening. I wanted to create a show dedicated to supporting our most passionate, environmentally and socially driven creatives, entrepreneurs and changemakers whose work motivates me personally so much. What does thriving mean to you? To me, it goes beyond having the ability to maintain things as…

You’re a well-established ceramicist – how’s your work evolved over the years? I’ve been a practising potter for over 10 years now, and every year I feel like I’m getting to know the material a little better. Clay teaches you what’s possible and what’s challenging – I’ve always been curious to see what the possibilities are. I guess my work evolves with what I’m excited to explore. My intrigue is form and how it relates to food, nature, people and place. Where do you get inspiration? Life is inspiring, nature is informing, and people are entertaining and encouraging. The moments of looking at nature and seeing its raw beauty is what holds my interest – then turning that memory into forms and surfaces with clay. What are some of the challenges of the industry? The…

By now, we’re all pretty aware of the perils of single-use coffee cups, with a plethora of cool-kid alternatives meaning there’s really no excuse to go disposable. But what about the other liquids we imbibe on the daily? Though it may sometimes feel like it, coffee ain’t the only drink – from water and wine to juice and smoothies, we’re all in danger of hitting a hydration station woefully underprepared. To help you out, here’s a roundup of receptacles that’ll help you retain that A+ eco-warrior status. MEMOBOTTLE While the fact I’m drinking from an A5-sized thing leads to a barrage of paper-related ponderings (if I drink two bottles-worth have I drunk an A4 sheet of paper? How many bottles would I need to drink to write that book I’ve been meaning…
