- Our rain barrel sales have been successful for hundreds of our non-profit partner organizations since 2010 in Canada and USA. The product is a recycled barrel and parts made to our specifications that last for years. See our fundraising videos in the right side column of this page.
Rain barrels help homeowners and gardeners:
· save on their water bills,
· water gardens with fresh rainwater instead of treated tap water and
· be part of the ecologically-correct movement to slow rain down by filtering it through the earth rather than have it pick up toxins running down pavement and into storm systems.
HOW DOES IT WORK? You sell these barrels for less than half of what you would pay for a new product at a retail store. Profits are $10 or more per barrel depending on the selling price when you staff the 2 to 3 hour distribution day at your location. If you lack time or resources, to coordinate a sale, we would be happy to review the option to run one for you. Additional profits can be made on some accessories like downspout diverters, rain barrel stands and hoses (see all products HERE)
YOUR CUSTOMERS ORDER ONLINE: We create a dedicated webpage where customers can order their products in support of your organization. You can see an example of a page HERE
SCHEDULING: We are booking weekday deliveries for distribution events scheduled at your convenience and invite you to choose your preferred date and time. Some weekend deliveries may also be available.
A 4-WEEK PROMOTIONAL PERIOD: We ask you to use your usual communications such as email, social media or newsletters to contact your supporters and to provide a location for distribution of the barrels. Any promotional activities beyond that will only increase sales and your profits. If any of these pose a challenge to you, let us know. We can help work out a plan that is best for you and we are happy to assist with promotional efforts including providing a 40+ page booklet of ideas to keep your sale safe, efficient and productive.
GREAT FOR SCHOOLS: This is a particularly helpful fundraiser for schools that would not have to rely solely on students’ guardians to purchase these items to help the school fundraise. These are products that many local homeowners will want to buy. Additionally, your students do not have to collect and deliver payments to the school which lessens the burden on them, their families and their teachers.
TAILORED TO YOUR GROUPS NEEDS: Please be in touch with any questions. We are able to help any group be a recipient of locally raised funds, knowing full well that each has its own needs and resources. Allow us to help create a plan that will work for you!
NEXT STEP: If you are ready, the next step will be to fill out our Partnership Information Form HERE and then we will be in touch with you to move this project forward.
We look forward to hearing from you any time you have any questions or comments.
