Junkies Magazine Australia Issue 9

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

You may remember that I am now contributing articles to Junkies Magazine Australia.  The latest Junkies Magazine Australia is out now (Issue 9) and two of my articles are in it.

Junkies Magazine is an eco-driven print publication, filled with interesting stories related to the 'rethink, reuse, reduce and recycle' mentality.  Junkies Magazine introduces people and brands who are following sustainable practices in a creative way.

In the latest issue of Junkies Magazine Australia, I had an interesting experience interviewing Catie in Istanbul. Catie is the volunteer currently managing the Drop Earrings Not Bombs project.

Drop Earrings Not Bombs is community-run imitative called Small Projects Istanbul; a volunteer organisation that focuses on providing education and support for displaced Syrian refugees.  The community group weave bright coloured teardrop earrings, which are then sold all over the world and therefore generate an income for those who make them.

Due to time differences, the entire interview with Catie took place via email questions and WhatsApp voicemail replies. Thank goodness for technology.

The second article relates to a small business much closer to home.  I delved into Zane and Manuel's Melbourne based business Melbourne Vintage Audio.  Zane and Manuel scour the country for vintage bags and suitcases, and transform them into magnificent bluetooth Suitcase Speakers (V-Case).

The article in Junkies Magazine Australia explains how Zane and Manuel's suitcases with soul concept became a reality in 2011, and how the business is booming 6 years later, in more ways than one.

I'm also really delighted to see that I teed up Margaret Wells with Junkies Magazine Australia.  You'll notice Melbourne-based Margaret's bottle-cap headpiece and dress adorning the front cover of this edition of Junkies Mag!
