We are excited to announce the return of the $50 rain barrel rebate program for residents of Franklin County, Ohio! The Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District is again offering a $50 instant rebate for rain barrels through its GreenSpot Community Backyards Program. Rain Brothers is partnering with the conservation organization by offering the instant $50 rebate when qualifying participants purchase one of our rain barrels. Add that to our new free shipping on rain barrels for metro-Columbus residents, and catching some rain just got a whole lot cheaper!
The Greenspot Community Backyards rebate program focuses on rainwater runoff and its detrimental impacts on local water quality, streambank erosion, and localized flooding. Participants learn how to install rain barrels and rain gardens, along with other sustainable practices such as composting at home and the use of native plants. To qualify for the rebate, residents of Franklin County must first join the Greenspot program, which encourages homeowners, businesses, non-profits and community groups to become members and make a commitment to the environment. Participants must also register and complete a online course with the Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District in order to qualify for the rebate.
Once you have the rebate, you will be given a coupon code and can complete your purchase through our online store, or by visiting our friends at City Folks Farm Shop.
