It is funny how things work. You always hear the saying that “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. Or, in the environmental field that “one person can make a difference”. We nod our heads agreeing, but then we go on like before.
Here at Maxi Container and our sister site, mirainbarrel, we have decided that we are going to make a difference, one rain barrel at a time. There are so many reason why using a rain barrel to harvest rain water makes sense. The water is better for your garden, you help reduce pollution and storm water run off, you save money, etc.
But one thing leads to another. Last month we hosted the first Rain Barrels on the River Front with the Sierra Club Great Lakes Program and the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy. One of the attendees was Claire M. Galed. As it happens Claire is the Manager of the Huntington Woods, MI Department of Public Works. She contacted us and now, Maxi is teaming up with Huntington Woods to sponsor a rain barrel workshop for all Huntington Woods residents on July 22, 2012.
We are very excited to be working with Claire and Huntington Woods. Clearly, here is one person who is making a difference.
