It pains me a little to share this little travel hack, but it really is too good to keep secret.

Inspired by dumpster divers handing out free meals in Melbourne, an Amsterdam collective is helping feed asylum seekers with food rescued from the rubbish. Now their food waste feasts are about to hit the road, heading to areas of Europe most affected by the refugee crisis.

(My story for +SBS Food.)

The latest Peppermint Magazine is gold – both in colour and content. (And features two stories by me, on Bhumi Organic Cotton in Melbourne and Global Sisters in Sydney.)

“I don’t have to worry about kissing someone’s ass because I want a promotion or a job or a raise. I can now speak the truth from my heart. And what motivates me to speak the truth is my grandchildren. I am part of a generation that has left them an absolute mess. Their entire future is at stake from what politicians do or do not do in the next few years.”

I spoke with fierce Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki for The Adelaide Review.

"Those crafty Germans. In the small city of Heidelberg they’ve popped an irresistible dare on a rather small and unobtrusive sign. “Strongest beer in the world!” the sign proclaims, and what champion Aussie beer guzzler couldn’t help but rise to the challenge?"

“Tradition and history have been used too many times to defend values that are unacceptable. Society is tired of these traditions. We want change.” – Spanish filmmaker Miguel Angel Rolland.
