Eco find: Terracottalike barrel makes rainwater harvesting a breeze

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Who says going green means sacrificing your outdoor style?

      Part planter, part rain barrel, Algreen’s Castilla 50 ($139) boasts a capacity of 190 litres, an internal screen that keeps bugs and foliage separate from water, and a handy spigot that allows you to transfer the harvested H2O directly into a watering can.

      It’s made from a durable rotomoulded plastic that mimics the texture of earthy terra cotta—a look that’s enhanced once you add your favourite blooms to the integrated planter up top. The barrel gets bonus points for being made in Canada.

      Find it at Home Depot (various locations).
