Newman Treehuggers - Rain Barrel Sale
Saturday, May 24th/2014

The Treehuggers Eco Club at Blessed Cardinal Newman High School is now accepting pre-sale orders as part of their truckload Rain Barrel sale. This fundraising event is scheduled for Saturday, May 24th at the school, 100 Brimley Road South, Toronto, ON from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Rain barrels are only $55 each and orders can be placed online in advance at These environmentally friendly products were once used to transport fruits and vegetables, but now they have been repurposed and offer years of reliable service as rain barrels.

When ordering in advance of the sale, purchasers select the colour and model of their rain barrel, and add any accessories, such as downspout diverters and rain barrel stands. Each barrel is equipped with all the parts needed to put it together, so it can be collecting water in no time at all.
