From Pip HQ To You
More readers, more content and we’ve been nominated for a gong! And it’s all thanks to you
In these uncertain times, we want to take a moment to spread the positive tidings of Pip’s very bright future. Between a significant spike in reader engagement, a switch up to four issues each year and a fast-growing team of passionate and talented staff, it all points to more informative, entertaining and inspiring content for you, more often.
As Australians look to become more self-reliant through sustainable living and permaculture practices, Pip has doubled both its print subscribers and online engagement. The growth in interest in what Pip does best has inspired us to do it better; we’re creating stories, features, videos and podcasts that are more accessible, more informative and even more inspiring for you to live the life you want to live. And if our readership results weren’t enough to let us know we’re on the right track, we’re delighted to announce Pip has been nominated for the Publishing Company of the Year industry award! We’re up against some big hitters and will be announced early next month. So thanks to each and every one of you for being part of the growing and vibrant Pip community. Without you and your ongoing support we wouldn’t be able to grow. And the fact we can grow in these times shows people are thinking more about the way they live their lives and the impact it has on their planet.
And that’s the best news of all.
More Than Just A Magazine
Read, watch, listen, learn and like!
Six short years ago, Robyn Rosenfeldt had a vision to create an engaging and informative magazine that would inspire people from all backgrounds to reduce their impact on the planet. She wanted to create a platform that wasn’t just preaching to the converted, but accessible to anyone with an interest in sustainable living – and the response was overwhelming.
The demand for the content means Pip has since branched out from a beautiful print product to a bustling content hub, which means there’s now more ways for you to find and consume the best of Pip in whatever form takes your fancy. As well as the magazine, you can search Pip’s website, follow us on social media, subscribe to our YouTube channel, sign up for our e-newsletter and subscribe to our podcast!
More To Four!
Four issues a year in 2021
There’s now less time to wait for your next issue of Pip as we increase our frequency to four issues a year from next issue onwards. That means more content tailored to seasonal inspiration, more inspiring builds, more delicious recipes and even more ideas for how you can reduce your impact on the world as we all strive to do the best we can with what we’ve got. Current subscribers will receive the remaining issues of their subscription and will renew as normal once it’s expired, with the price adjusted to include the extra issue. Delivery remains free.
The first issue of 2021 will on newsstands and in your mailbox in February!
Doing Our Bit
7 Ways Pip Is Helping Save The Planet
Pip supports organisations who are doing good in the world and who share the permaculture ethics of earth care, people care and fair share.
In the last year, Pip has donated to Permafund, Firesticks, Bega LALC Cultural Burning Program among others, as well as several fire-affected individuals.
3. PLASTIC FREE
We have now eliminated plastic from our parcel posts. Postage, including subscriptions, are sent in paper-based and, where possible, recycled packaging.
4. VEGETABLE INK
Yes, really. Pip magazine is printed using vegetable inks. Not only is it saying no to harmful petroleumbased products, it emits less pollution during the printing process, too.
We make considered choices about all aspects of running our business from the paper we choose to print on to the power we run our office with, right down to the tea and coffee we drink.
Pip is printed on 100 percent recycled paper, uses an Australian printer committed to environmental responsibility and who is internationally accredited with ISO 14001.
7. DO AS WE DO
Pip HQ is powered by gridconnected solar and uses rainwater collected from the roof. Boxes are used as sheet mulch, paper is recycled or composted and all recyclable waste dealt with responsibly.
