ECVC is proud to now assemble rain barrels for Epoch Rain Barrels. Did you know that a 1-inch rainstorm can produce more than 700 gallons of stormwater from a typical roof? Rain barrels collect and hold rainwater from rooftops, which can be used for watering ornamental plants, gardens, and lawns. These barrels are a simple way you can help the environment.
Rain Barrels Significantly Reduce:
Non-Point Source Water Pollution
Erosion From Storm Surges in our Streams
Amount of Treated City Water Used for Watering Lawns and Gardens
When placed under a downspout and used to collect runoff water from a home, one rain barrel can save a homeowner about 1,300 gallons of water during the peak summer months, versus using sprinklers or a hose to water the lawn and garden. Epoch Rain Barrels are sold around the country to lawn and garden centers and to retail outlets such as Whole Foods.
Why Epoch Rain Barrels?
Epoch Solutions rain barrels are repurposed or “up-cycled” high quality food-grade drums that were destined for a landfill. Epoch repurposes these drums into rain barrels using socially and environmentally conscious labor and assembly processes.
