About The Lovepost

The Lovepost is an alternative, socially responsible platform, free from advertising and fear. We are dedicated to tackling social and environmental issues through a solution-focused lens. Our stories are produced by a diverse collective of change-makers from around the globe, who are fueled by a united goal: to create content that brings about positive change and makes planet Earth a better and more inclusive place for all its inhabitants.

The Lovepost was founded in 2018, in Auckland, New Zealand, in an effort to break away from the mainstream media’s market-driven approach to journalism and use of sensationalist tactics to increase profit margins. The justification given by many mainstream media outlets is that they are “giving readers what they want” i.e., sensationalism sells.

At The Lovepost, our approach is different. We believe in transmitting content that inspires, challenges, educates and pushes humanity in a more meaningful direction. We are reflective, not reactive; truthful, not manipulative; solution-focused, not problem-engrossed. We recognise that in the same way excess junk food isn’t good for our wellbeing, the consumption of sensationalist media can have a detrimental impact on our mental health, society and planet at large.

Our global collective of creators work tirelessly to provide fresh, wholesome mind-meals for conscious citizens who are ready to challenge their thinking and play their part in offering positive solutions to the troubles of the planet.
