I’m trying to retrain myself to avoid purchasing and throwing away single-use
plastic items. Here’s something I’ve come across, that makes good second-use of a plastic item; rainbarrels, made from re-purposed olive shipping containers. These are heavy-duty plastic, nearly indestructible, free of harmful chemicals, and well set up to be rainbarrels, with a bug-and-dirt screen, an overflow, and a spigot to connect a garden hose. A rainbarrel can save you money and time in several ways; the water that runs off your roof can be harmful to the foundation of the building. Eaves troughs will direct that runoff into a barrel, where it can be used to water the lawn or garden – anything other than running into the basement. I’ve arranged for several barrels this year, and I only need a few, so I’ll have some to distribute, but I encourage anyone who has access to a truck, to buy several, and get as many as possible into service. For more information about pre-ordering these barrels, composters, and accessories, go to this site https://
