Period power! Together we can end period poverty with Taboo’s organic pads and tampons

Let's talk periods for a moment (we'll just give the gents who accidentally clicked on the story a second to make a hasty exit). While we here in Australia have things largely sorted when it comes to our monthly visits from Aunty Flo, the heartbreaking truth is that 30-percent of girls in developing countries will drop out of school once they start having periods. Furthermore, far too many reproductive complications stem from the lack of appropriate menstrual health care and education. TABOO is a social enterprise turning the tide on period poverty. more

Ahoy, mates! Eco-friendly electric picnic boats by GoBoat to set sail on the Gold Coast this summer

If you've ever daydreamed about cruising through the waterways on your own private boat while grazing on cheese boards and sipping champagne, only to be abruptly catapulted back to reality when you realise that you don't actually own a boat, let alone have a licence to drive one, then we have news for you. A fleet of eco-friendly electric-powered picnic boats is launching on the Gold Coast this summer – no licence is required, and you can BYO snacks and sips. more

Win a double pass to see Last Christmas

Emilia Clarke (HBO’s Game of Thrones), Henry Golding (A Simple Favor, Crazy Rich Asians), Michelle Yeoh and Emma Thompson star in Last Christmas, a brand-new romantic comedy inspired by a George Michael classic. The adorable story comes from a screenplay by Academy Award-winner Thompson, with director Paul Feig (A Simple Favor, Spy, Bridesmaids) also on board to make some sweet festive magic. Kate harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes – just one of a number of irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop.
