We can help reduce the amount of energy being used in filtering tap water, and reduce the amount of chemicals introduced and repeated into the water cycle, by using Rain collectors on roof tops or under downspouts for utility needs.
We can use rain barrels for:
. Utility use for washing cars and other things
. For use in art/ garden and utility sinks
. Watering our plants and gardens
Rain Barrels are nothing new... just making the step is.
