Did you know that according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, nearly 97% of the world’s water is salty or otherwise undrinkable? Another 2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers. That leaves just 1% for all of humanity’s needs — all its agricultural, residential, manufacturing, community, and personal needs!

One way to reduce your water footprint is to install a rain barrel either at home or in your community. For a limited time, Project Rain Barrel will supply host organizations with free materials, workshop planning support, and event promotion to host their own rain barrel workshops. Click here for more information on how your community organization can get involved.
