Seedlip: The ‘spirit drink’ that inspired Kate Moss and it’s not what you are thinking…

Supermodel Kate Moss credits SEEDLIP, the World’s First Distilled Non-Alcoholic Spirit, as her afternoon tipple and recent creative inspiration.

Kate leads the supermodel love for this zero calorie, sugar free non-alcoholic spirit sharing her passion for SEEDLIP Spice and Tonics with Founder Ben Branson who is driving the global trend of sophisticated booze-free drinking.

SEEDLIP, is on a mission to solve the dilemma of ‘What to Drink when you’re Not Drinking®’ and launched in Luxury store Selfridges and has since been championed by some of the world’s most celebrated Michelin starred chefs and bartenders including The Fat Duck, The Ledbury, Clove Club, Dandelyan, Dead Rabbit, French Laundry and The American Bar at The Savoy.

Kate Moss has graced over 300 international magazine covers and is a darling of the fashion set. She is a Vogue favourite which credits SEEDLIP as the go-to beverage worldwide.

The brainchild of UK-based entrepreneur and botany enthusiast Ben Branson, SEEDLIP is available in two expressions; SEEDLIP Garden 108 is bright and herbal with six distillates including hand-picked Peas from Branson’s family farm in Lincolnshire. SEEDLIP Spice 94 is complex and aromatic with six distillates including Jamaican All Spice berries and American Oak. Best served with tonic, both offer a sophisticated alternative to sweet mocktails or soft drinks.

“Meeting Kate was surreal and as we grow Seedlip internationally having such a global icon and influencer of taste like her supporting us is incredible” says Branson, Founder of Seedlip.

Blister Balm: the all-natural blister prevention relief balm making footwear comfortable

In today’s trend driven culture, it’s safe to say that many Australians often choose fashion over fit when it comes to their footwear.

With a plethora of options for work, play and even gym, finding the ultimate designer lace-up, winter boot, summer wedge, kitten heel, office pump, practical flat, sandal or runner can prove no easy feat.

According to the Australian Podiatry Association, footwear materials and shape are the biggest factors associated with shoe discomfort. On a mission to remedy this age-old affliction, all natural Australian company, Blister Balm, have created the ultimate spot-relief balm to combat shoe chaffing.

Ideal for men, women and children alike, Blister Balm’s unique waxy formulation is applied to high-friction areas of the feet, such as toes, heels, instep and outstep, in order to ease discomfort, protect from infection and repair skin.

Garage Sale Trail is back for 2017 with two massive days of reuse!

Garage Sale Trail, the multi-award winning sustainability and community campaign powered by over 150 local councils, is back again for its first ever two-day event, held on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October 2017.

Households, community groups, charities, local businesses and schools across Australia are set to join an estimated 350,000+ Australians as a part of the seventh annual Garage Sale Trail.

Aimed at bringing communities together and promoting reuse, Garage Sale Trail has set two major goals for 2017: to see 2 million items listed for reuse over the weekend event, and enable 120,000 new neighbourly connections Australia-wide.

“Garage Sale Trail helps people to think about how we can all take responsibility for the waste we create. Items that are reused don’t end up in council collections or in landfill. It’s also a simple way for people to meet and talk to people in their community, as well as fundraise,” said Andrew Valder, co-founder of Garage Sale Trail.

The initiative, run by Australian not-for-profit Garage Sale Trail Foundation, exists to create positive social and environmental change in communities across Australia. The idea was born in Bondi Beach in 2010, and has since grown into a highly-anticipated, annual national movement.

“Good for the planet and good for the community too! We love the creative spirit and colour that sellers bring to their sale names and the unexpected items on offer. Past examples include a vintage tractor, miniature goats, a beachside apartment and even a couple of grandpas – it’s all part of the fun!” said Darryl Nichols, Garage Sale Trail co-founder.

FACTS & FIGURES

  •  10,000+ forecast garage sales and stalls nationally
  •  350 000+ participants expected nationally
  •  2 million items projected to be listed nationally
  •  120,000 new neighbourly connections forged across Australia
