By now, you've surely heard the hype about green living, but we guarantee if you give it a go, you'll find the hype is actually just plain truth. Making environmentally sound choices is most often economically sound, too - a win-win situation, right? Start with the literally green 52 Gallon Collapsible Rain Water Barrel, a durable, weather-resistant nylon barrel that collects up to 52 gallons of rain runoff from your home's gutter spout and filters debris out so you have a totally natural, totally free source of water to tend your yard and gardens. Plants benefit more from fresh water over tap water, and your pocketbook benefits, too: 40 percent of all water is used outdoors for plants and lawns during warmer months. Simply attach your garden hose to the tap at the bottom of the barrel and water away. The barrel itself conserves space, as well - when you want to store it during the winter, just collapse it, move it easily, and store it neatly in a shed or garage. Green living doesn't get simpler.
