RAIN BARREL & CISTERN SALES EVENT

Santa Monica Airport, 3050 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica, CA
FREE ADMISSION - REBATES available for all featured products
Harvesting rainwater from your rooftop protects the Santa Monica Bay from polluted runoff, reduces potable water demand, and adds a little excitement to your life and landscape.
Rain barrels are the easiest and least expensive way to get started. See examples of how to install the products, and take the product home with you.
If rain barrels aren’t doing it for you, cisterns are the way to go. Holding anywhere from hundreds to thousands of gallons, cisterns will be on display for the professionals or the more adventurous among us.
The products, local expertise and rebates will all be available. Get event updates as they are announced at www.sustainablesm.org.
