one tree planted for every new peppermint subscription.

let’s plant the future When it comes to the fight against climate change, every tree – and every action – matters. That’s why we’ve partnered with non-profit environmental charity One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every Peppermint subscription sold. Because although the problems our world faces may seem overwhelming, we know we can work together to create real, lasting change – one tiny seedling at a time. Now, when you take out a subscription, you’ll be helping to plant trees in vulnerable communities around the world, including North America, Indonesia, the Amazon rainforest and Australia. The simple act of planting trees helps to restore biodiversity, support reforestation, protect endangered wildlife, provide sustainable jobs and income and, crucially, store carbon from the atmosphere in a bid to prevent global temperatures rising…

editor-in-chief’s letter

Peppermint Issue 49 I recently gave a talk during which I was asked if I had any regrets about anyone we’ve featured in Peppermint. While the question was aimed at whether or not we’d ever discovered that, post-publication, a brand or individual had been dishonest about their sustainability credentials (musings for another time), I felt my chest tighten. It was a question I’d been grappling with in recent weeks, and so it was triggering something of an existential crisis. I’ve always said I don’t live with regrets – that life is a learning experience, and I wouldn’t be where I am if not for the ups – and downs – that led here. I don’t tend to wallow in decisions once made or hold on to ‘what ifs’ – instead, I focus…

dear peppermint

So I finally got a spare second and sat down cosy on the couch to flip through a new mag that my beautiful sister-in-law gave me and, my goodness, what a beautiful issue! It’s rare, and such a treat, to flip through a mag that’s so dedicated to full pages of such beautiful art and imagery, no clutter – just beauty for the eyes! Well done Peppermint magazine, Issue 48 was such a stunner! And such a beautiful dedication to the current situation the world finds itself in. I could not put it down. – Lydia The editor’s letter in Issue 48 made me cry. It was exactly what I needed to hear. I’m an eternal optimist but I was feeling pretty downtrodden by the end of 2020. Thank YOU Peppermint for…

A NEW AGENDA Having kicked off his term by rejoining the Paris Agreement within hours of being sworn in, US President Joe Biden received an open letter – signed by prominent names including Dr Katharine Hayhoe, David Miliband and Kevin Rudd – urging him to use his term to become the “climate president”. His first weeks in office have seen Biden appoint a team of climate change experts and unveil a number of measures designed to tackle the issue, including cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline and requiring federal agencies to buy zero-emissions vehicles and clean electricity.
