Group fitness ideas that will give you a serious(ly fun) workout

When it comes to exercise, some people prefer to just hit the gym with their headphones in and go it alone. For the rest of us, motivation often comes in the form of dragging our friends along for the ride. Getting active with your pals is a fantastic excuse to hang out guilt-free, not to mention a great incentive to treat yourself afterwards – swings and roundabouts, right? We’ve teamed up with our mates at Water3 to give you some group workout inspo that’s a little more exciting than your standard backyard cricket game. more

The Weekend Series: five things we are vibing on this June

Life comes at you fast – one minute you’re writing your New Year’s resolutions on the back of a napkin at a party, the next minute you realise you’ve made it halfway through the year living on a diet of mostly pasta and regret.

No matter which boat you’re in, we’re here to celebrate the fact that there is plenty of rad stuff happening around the world that you might not even know about – from ramen-topped ice-cream to Crayola make-up, here are five things we’re vibing on this June. more

Let’s get loud – meet socially responsible streetwear label IDEY KOKO

It’s hard to deny the appeal of a bold African print, but a lot of the time Western folk will fail to recognise the significance of the culture it comes from. These aren’t just clothes – each design tells a story, with many commemorating events, culture and art references. It seems like a cheap shot when big corporations appropriate these designs for massive profits without giving anything back to the country of origin, so how do you embrace the culture while helping the people behind it? IDEY KOKO is a Sydney-via-Ghana-based streetwear label bringing the fun, flavour and beauty of African prints to a brand-new market with the utmost respect, served with a serious side of social responsibility. more

Hydration stations – Water3 has popped up to provide a sustainable drinking water alternative

Whether you’re a water-bottle diehard or guilty of buying a bit too much pre-packaged H2O, one of the biggest hurdles we face when trying to ethically stay hydrated is access to water that’s actually drinkable. We live in an imperfect world where questionable park bubblers or suspicious-looking taps are our only real options when it comes to refilling our water bottles when we’re out and about. That is, they were our only options – enter Water3, a brand-new player in the responsible hydration game. This social enterprise has popped up with a clean and convenient solution to our bottled water addiction, providing both spring water and reusable bottles at water refill stations around South East Queensland. more

Stand out from the crowd with super small-batch jewels from 100 of One

If you’ve ever been going through a rough patch at work, you can probably relate to the crushing anxiety that can come with it. Practising mindfulness (read: distracting your brain from the bad stuff) is one of the oldest tricks in the book for dealing with stress, but it’s not often that our hobbies turn into hustles. For dentist Jana Nikolovski, making jewellery was a sweet escape that transitioned into a fully-fledged business that utilised her unique skill set in a totally different way. The inspiring origins, small-batch concept and unique manufacturing process are just three reasons that 100 of One should be on your radar. more

Help our planet (and your wallet) by making the switch to a reusable coffee cup

Your morning brew definitely isn’t a crime, but it’s no secret that disposable coffee cups are doing some pretty serious damage to the planet.
