Rain barrels provide environmental benefits of conserving fresh water while saving you money in the process. According to the EPA over 40% of all household water use in summer months is used on lawn and garden maintenance.
Rain barrels, which are commonly connected to a downspout system, collect run off from impervious areas on rooftops that would otherwise be directed into the storm drain system, and store it for later use. That rainwater, which is free from chemicals found in tap water, can then be used to water plants and lawns. Its a win for your wallet and win for the environment.
