Need a little help saving water during California’s current water crisis?

Santa Monica-based nonprofit Sustainable Works is hosting a rain barrel sale event on Saturday, April 12, that can reduce your water usage and help the environment at the same time.

After a one year hiatus from offering rain barrels, Sustainable Works hopes more residents will take advantage of a renewed interest in outdoor water conservation coupled with a rebate available through the SoCal Water$mart program.

According to the SoCal Water$mart website, Santa Monica residents currently qualify for up to a $200 rebate toward the purchase of a rain barrel. To guarantee a rain barrel will be available for pick-up, residents are encouraged to pre-order online at

The rain barrels will be available for pick-up in the parking lot of Sustainable Works (1744 Pearl St.) from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m, or while limited supplies last.

Ten percent of the sales proceeds go to support Sustainable Works.
