Rainwater Hog

Avail at Design Within Reach...

Catch your rainwater for use later... One unit holds 47 gallons of rainwater collected from a downspout, and if a larger capacity is needed, simply attach another Hog. A percentage of the sales of this $650-dollar raincatcher goes to the nonprofit Water Aid. Also in keeping with the eco-conscious Hog, it ships without packaging. Other than a small box holding an Elbow Vent and Connector taped to the unit, the Hog arrives unwrapped and unboxed. 71"x20"x9" this low profile rainwater collector fits easily under a deck or mounted on a wall...

Smudge Sticks?

I don't really understand what you use a smudge stick for, but I do know that the sale of these is making the CA Ntive plant White Sage very Rare.

This place sells them does that mean they are anti-native plant?
