Earth Day is the perfect time to pick up a rain barrel so that you can start collecting naturally pure rainwater. Here are some of the many advantages of having a rain barrel:
Rainwater can be used for watering plants which will reduce your water bills.
Right As Rain
Your houseplants will thrive as rainwater is naturally soft and chemical-free.
Rainwater contains more oxygen than tap water which promotes plant growth.
Don’t Run Off
Rain barrels reduce stormwater runoff which helps prevent erosion and pollution.
Rain Or Shine
Rain barrels provide a sustainable water source during droughts or water restrictions.
If you already have a rain barrel, make sure it’s clear of debris, connected to your downspouts and that the overflow drain points away from your foundation.
If not, now’s the perfect time to buy a rain barrel. Whatever you end up doing this Earth Day, here’s hoping you have a world of fun and a barrel of laughs!
