I posted a list of my favourite webcomics a while ago. I am going to share another part of the webcomics I follow and really enjoy.

Drugs & Wires
This is my favourite cyberpunk webcomic. I really like the art and the fact that the events are set in an alternative, higher tech version the 90s. There are quirky characters, cyber junkies and mysteries. Drugs & Wires has an animated prequel, Dreamspace. Check out the D&W Oneshots for extra content and get analogue copies of the comics in the store.

Since I started following the "reduce, reuse, recycle" principle and trying to get out of our sytstem rulled by the highly disposable culture, I have searched many ways to develop more eco-friendly habbits. One of the things I do (and have done before) is to reuse old clothes and used paper. There is no such thing as "right" or "perfect" way to do it - it's about reusing things in a smart way. I have recently come up with a few ideas:


Fabric book cover from a shirt
Fabric covers - your books' new best friend.
This cover is a gift from my mother and is made from an old shirt of mine.

Pillow (or pillow case) from a t-shirt
There are tons of ways to reuse old t-shirts, some including cutting, others - sewing, etc.
I turned one of my favourite t-shirts into a small decorative pillow.

Gift wrap from a paper bag
Although paper bags are considered disposable, you can, in fact, reuse them.
I wrapped a present with half a paper bag and added some decorations from paper scraps.

Dry shampoo is a dry substance that comes in spray or powder form. It cleans your hair without the use of water by absorbing oil from your scalp and hair, and making it look and feel freshly washed again. I have tried a few brands and here is what I didn't like about them:

  • heavy fragrance

  • ingredients like isobutane, butane, propane, petroleum and alcohol

  • aerosol package

Homemade dry shampoo is easy to make. I tried this recipe from zoya.bg and I am very satisfied with the results - it works! Also, it's cheap, zero waste and smells so good.

Ingredients
1 Tbsp arrowroot powder
1 Tbsp corn flour

5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
5 drops peppermint essential oil
1 tsp natural cocoa (optional, for dark hair - you can experiment with the quantity)
+
old make-up (powder) brush
small glass jar

Instructions
Mix all the ingredients in the jar. Use on dry hair - apply with the brush
to the roots or oily parts of your hair. Wait a couple of minutes, comb your hair and style as usual.
