*please note that although the video describes the Rain Wizard 50, a slightly larger capacity than the Rain Wizard 40, the description and installation information are similar.
Rain barrels can provide that precious water you need for your lawn and garden. The Rain Wizard 40 has an attractive faux oak barrel design so it naturally fits in with your landscape. And the wide variety of colors allows you to even further match your barrel to your home and yard without standing out.
Its plastic screen mesh is newly designed to keep out bugs, animals, and debris while still being easy to remove for cleaning and maintenance and is gentle on skin. A front side overflow keeps water from flooding against your outside wall. The flat-back design is one of the most convenient features as it allows your barrel to sit right up against your home so you don't have to worry about purchasing excess downspout parts.
This barrel is made with 100% recycled polyethylene. This isn't your typical plastic either; Good Idea's PE is BPA free and FDA approved for contact with edibles. That means there aren't harmful levels of plastic additives into your water, so you can feel free to use it in your vegetable and herb gardens. And the barrel body can be recycled again at the end of its useful life - in about 8-10 years.
These barrels are tough. While most barrels will crack or become brittle in the winter time, the Rain Wizard 40 can be stored outdoors all year long. These barrels are made of 100% recycled plastic resin. Don't forget, you can increase your storage and savings with the Rain Wizard connector kit (don't worry, it works with nearly all Rain Wizard models). Or boost your pressure and make room for buckets with the Rain Wizard Stand.

Good Ideas, Inc.
Good Ideas, Inc. focuses on selling high quality, sustainable and niche products. They seek out exciting new markets with high potential growth. Founded in 2001 by Greg Cronkhite, Good Ideas has steadily become one of the top composter and rain barrel companies in the US market.
This rain barrel is made from 100% recycled plastic. It is made in Lake City, PA - so we know they were produced by qualified staff under all federal and state environmental restrictions. Being made in the USA also carries an additional environmental benefit in that the carbon impact of shipping and distribution is much smaller than a composter made overseas!
Studies estimate that over 5% of the US’s carbon footprint in remove treating and distributing potable water. Water sourcing, saving, and reuse technologies are critical to reducing our global AND personal carbon footprints. While a 40 gallon rain barrel will only save 2.5-5 lbs of CO2, a miniscule amount of your personal carbon footprint, engaging in a society wide effort to reduce the amount of water we use on our yards and gardens can could treat and distribute up to 15% less potable water! Check out this EPA WaterSense article for more information.
In addition to being made from recycled materials, these composters can also be recycled in most municipal recycling programs once they reach the end of their usable life.
