A Drop of Water

September 17, 2009


‘A Drop of Water’ is a rain barrel that makes saving water really easy by providing a watering can that is automatically filled when it rains. This way, the user doesn’t have to fill the can with our precious tap water, but uses ‘free’ rainwater instead to water the garden.
With the small tap at the bottom of the barrel the watering can can be refilled after using it.
