Do good for the planet—and your wallet—by saving water with a FortWhyte Alive rain barrel. Whether referred to as reclaimed, reconditioned or recycled, our focus is on distributing rain barrels that previously contained a food-grade product. Our rain barrels are the most eco-friendly and environmentally responsible choice, with an option to purchase in white or blue (limited quantities available).

Reduce your carbon footprint on the planet by composting. Not only will you limit the waste being sent into the garbage stream, you’ll receive nutrient-rich soil in return perfect for your backyard. The Earth Machine™ Composter is designed for easy, passive composting — just fill the bin, add water, and occasionally stir or poke. The finished compost will be ready for use in 4-6 months.
