Coca-Cola Rain Barrel Program

Rain Barrel Giveaway

Coca-Cola Refreshments's Rain Barrel Program is giving away 50 of these water-saving tools to Shedd Aquarium guests!



Date: Saturday, September 15
Start Time: 10:00 a.m.
Location: Shedd Aquarium's loading dock/service entrance
Limit of one rain barrel per person. As quantity is limited, rain barrels will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Rain barrels will be fully assembled upon distribution and may not fit in a compact car.

What is a rain barrel?
Place the rain barrel outdoors under a downspout or in a spot where plenty of watr falls. During future storms, your barrel will fill with water that can be used for thirsty plants indoors or out. That's an easy way to save money and reduce storm water runoff!

Why use a rain barrel?
Water used for your lawn or garden can account to more than 40% of your household's water use during the summer months. Rain barrels collect water and stores it for when you need it the most (like in a drought) to water your plants or wash your car. They save money and energy, too!
