Need a Compost Bin or Rain Barrel?

Order a Compost Bin or Rain Barrel
Get a jump-start on gardening by ordering a $55 compost bin or a $69 rain barrel for your home. (These regularly cost $105 and $139.) By using a compost bin, you can keep more than a quarter of your household waste out of the garbage while making valuable compost for your garden. A rain barrel will help you save water and money by using rainwater rather than the faucet for your garden and trees. Rain barrels are also a way of trapping the stormwater that runs toward the storm drains – picking up pollutants along the way – and into our lakes, streams and rivers.
