Going Green with rain barrels and compost bins

Video

Body

There is yet another way to go green right in your own backyard. The New Hanover County Soil and Water Conservation Office is holding a compost bin and rain barrel sale.

Rain barrels cut down on water usage to help save the environment and save money. They are placed underneath your gutter and collect rain water that can be used again to wash your car or water your yard.

“This is one of the easiest ways you can get involved. These are easily installed and just a way for you to help promote natural resource protection in our area, as well as saving some money for your pocketbook,” said Jennifer Alford of NC Soil and Water Conservation.

The sale will be held the second Thursday of each month at the Conservation Office at the New Hanover County Government Center.

The rain barrels go for $95 and the composting bins cost $70.
