Last year, I saw a brochure from a local public library saying it sells a rain barrel (208 liter, 55 galon) for $25.00 which was supported by the cities and some environment groups I guess. Anyway, I was so excited because I had been looking for some way to save rain. The rain water can not be used for our daily life like drinking or washing dishes or taking showers, but you can use it for your garden for those hot and dry days. It looks like this as in the photo below. It is fully filled for just one night rain. I was so surprised. I’m thinking to get another one for this year for my backyard. Interested? Google “rain barrel 2011” with your local regional name, e.g. rain barrel Vaughan 2011.
