Aponia Magazine focuses on the absence of pain
Natasje could not find any magazines about vegan trends. That is why she started Aponia Magazine. In the magazine you can find the best sustainable, cruelty-free and ethically made cosmetics and labels from around the world. In this interview Natasje tells us more about Aponia Magazine and how Peecho makes her self-publishing life easier.
1. Can you tell us something about yourself?
‘’My name is Natasje Garbers and I am a fashion and beauty photographer currently based in Sydney, Australia. I have a passion for sustainability and believe highly in promoting business that are ethical, vegan and cruelty-free. I love working with like-minded people who have a desire to change the world for the better, and create a place where everyone can live pain-free.’’
2. When and why did you start Aponia Magazine?
‘’Aponia Magazine started in 2012 after my frustration with not being able to find a well-curated magazine about vegan trends and business. The word ‘Aponia’ is ancient Greek; meaning “an absence of pain”. It was a belief held by the Epicureans that every being deserves to live at the height of pleasure; this can only be achieved in the absence of pain.’’
3. What is Aponia Magazine about?
‘’Aponia started as an all-encompassing magazine including vegan food, books, movies, fashion, beauty, art and local business. We took a step back to look at our goals and realign with our intentions. As of November 2016, Aponia Magazine became a vegan Fashion, Beauty & Arts magazine which showcases the best sustainable, cruelty-free and ethically made cosmetics and labels from around the world.’’
4. Why is Peecho the solution for you?
‘’I love Peecho because it makes self-publishing simple and takes out the stress. I can publish my magazine for my readers to see and they can order a copy if they want one at an affordable price. I don’t have to be concerned about who is printing it, where it needs to be posted and whether or not they have received it. Peecho always responds to my questions quickly and are sure to follow up constantly to make sure I am happy. They are a fantastic service that I can honestly say makes my life so much easier.’’
5. Who are your customers and how did you promote the option to print your magazine?
‘’My customers are compassionate and creative minds from all around the world, and Peecho delivers to almost every country imaginable so they are never left wanting. Being available as a print magazine is a must have in the fashion world – creatives like to see their work in front of them, which makes promoting the print version easy.’’You can find more information about Natasje on her website.
