Enter to win all month long! Did you know that our 55 Gallon Rain Barrels are upcycled! What’s upcycling? It’s taking something that you would otherwise throw out and finding a way to make it into something that has equal or greater use/value. Our barrels were ‘waste’ from the food shipping industry and repurposed (by a small company in Illinois) to become rain barrels! We also have THE best price in town - $69.99 each.
