Go green with this blue rain water barrel. I just got mine today and can't wait for the rains to fall. It holds 55 gallons. I can recycle the water for my plants, lawn, animal dishes, and washing Cabot. One problem: To be an efficient water catcher, it needs a rain gutter for the run off. Mine all fell off years ago. Must iron out that little wrinkle. Going green is not cheap...but it more than makes up for the cost by being eco-friendly.
