One of the easiest ways to live greener is by reducing the resources you consume. Fortunately using less water is pretty easily—and beautifully—achieved. Why waste municipal water on your lawn or garden? Harvesting rainwater to use is much better for the environment as it both prevents runoff from flooding local streams, rivers or lakes, and means home water usage (which needs to be piped in or taken from a well) is reduced. Check out these awesome creative rainwater harvesting systems…from the crazy expensive to the nearly free.
