Sustainable Living Tips

Install a Rain Garden

Use a Rain Barrel

A rain barrel is a water tank used to collect and store rainwater at the end of your downspout, which you can then use to water plants, wash your car and reduce your water bill. They are a simple, efficient, low-cost method for homeowners to collect and recycle water. The Conservation Foundation offers rain barrels for sale, as well as local retailers.
