Many homeowners who live in dry areas have air conditioners.  And air conditioners produce water condensate that can be collected in a rain barrel.  This condensate can be recycled for everyday watering of your plants and garden.  All you have to do is to collect the condensate drain pipe from your air conditioner to your rain barrel!

An excerpt:

Polls showed the environment was becoming a top-of-mind issue for North Americans, and the region had just gone through a water shortage.

Trade magazines talked about the popularity of rain barrels in drought-prone areas, but the ones available for sale were not visually appealing.

After experimenting with different designs, the company came up with two sizes of rain barrels designed to look like terracotta pots. A planter in the lid allows shrubbery to spill over the top, integrating the barrels into the surroundings.
