Sustainability Aspects: Using rainwater to water the garden.

Raindrop mini

Raindrop is a rain barrel that makes saving water really easy by providing a watering can that fills up automatically when it rains. This way, the user doesn’t have to fill the can with our precious tap water, but uses ‘free’ rainwater instead. With the small tap at the bottom of the barrel, the watering can can be refilled after using it.
The design was the winner of the René Smeets award 2009 and was shortlisted for several other prestigious design awards, among which the Condé Nast Traveller I&D awards.

The Raindrop is also available in a mini version for use on a balcony.
