Alas, our community sales are done for the season but you can still buy barrels & composters at the EcoStore (#100, 301 - 14th St NW)


Our annual Rain Barrel & Composter Sales are a Calgary tradition. We've sold thousands of those famous blue and white barrels to Calgary homeowners throughout the city - resulting in millions of gallons of water conserved every year! And all proceeds go right back into providing innovative environmental programs in our local community.  You can call Green Calgary's EcoStore at 403.230.1443 ext. 222 or email us at products@greencalgary.org for more info.

NEW: Check out our Installation Support blog for help setting up your rain barrel.

Please note: as this is a charitable fundraiser, we don't do refunds. Please contact us to learn more about our exchange policy. Thank you for your understanding.

Rainwater Harvesting

By using rain barrels at home, you can help conserve water and save money. Rain barrels are low maintenance, easy to use and the water collected is chlorine-free with a natural temperature that won't shock plants. Capturing storm water at home also helps reduce the flow of water back to our rivers, reducing the flow of contaminants while supporting flood mitigation efforts. Plus using a rain barrel means that less water needs to treated, reducing demand on water treatment facilities, which in the end saves us all money.

Purchase a Rain Barrel


Did you know that food and yard waste make up almost 60% of the garbage from our homes? And when these materials go into the landfill, they are crushed. Instead of decomposing, they result in greenhouse gas emissions. With a composter from Green Calgary, you can easily do your part to reduce organic waste going to our landfills. Plus, using compost in your yard helps soil retain water, discourages weeds, and adds essential microorganisms. The result is a healthier, greener garden & yard without toxic fertilizers and pesticides.
