Pay Attention to Water ! Contain Rain is a local project helping our community of Portland, Oregon to do just that. We are focused on developing methods of catching, storing, and using rainwater. We aim to change the way people think about DIY water conservation. We are open source.
Grown out of a passion for permaculture and community-building, Contain Rain is a resource for urban-dwelling activists interested in resource conservation. We remove used containers from the waste stream, offer them to the community for DIY water conservation.
We are a non-corporate project, interested in the promotion of water conservation practices in our community.
We offer rainbarrel kits that are easy to install yourself. We also provide affordable consultation and project management for larger systems. We distribute free educational materials.
