I am very excited to be announcing my partnership with Junkies magazine. I will be a regular contributer to the magazine, writing about sustainable living and homes. Junkies was started in 2012 by a small group of passionate creative women from Queensland. Current editor, Selena Buckingham, was lucky enough to become part of Junkies from issue 7.
While preserving the vision for the magazine, Selena and her business partner created a new team. Together they then developed a new design look for the magazine, one with clean lines and a lasting aesthetic – with the motto, “We are here to make changes to our world, one piece of junk at a time”.
This unique magazine focuses on sustainability and the idea of reclaiming our own junk and waste; creating new ways to reuse it, reduce it and recycle it.
“We aim to promote more awareness in the community on re-thinking our choices and re-imagining waste as a valuable resource,” says Selena. “Our vision is to connect, to join voices with like minded individuals and businesses to spread an important message about our environmental responsibilities.”
Now into the 16th issue, this passionate group of creatives, believe they have made a place for themselves in the world of sustainability, with a growing audience of like-minded people. Each edition features the creatives, the makers, and the voices of change – from individuals to big businesses.
Selena says she is excited this year as they already have some great articles lined up – from Natalie Isaac from 1 million women, to a passionate creative on the other side of the world – an artist who uses watch parts to create his intricate and amazing work.
In December this year Junkies will be releasing a special edition which will showcase many creatives in coffee table version of the magazine.
I look forward to contributing to this special publication – you can head here to find out where you can purchase your edition or to subscribe. In addition, anyone who joins the Sustainable Home Hub here, will receive special discounts for advertising in the magazine.
