#Rainbarrelselfie Contest Returns

Posted on May 5, 2016

We're pleased to announce our second annual #rainbarrelselfie contest! 

Capturing rain and using it on your property is a great way to conserve water; keep contaminants out of our rivers and streams; and water your plants, lawn, trees and shrubs. We want to get #yyc excited about rain barrel season because we know that Calgarians can save millions of litres of water every year!

To encourage more Calgarians than ever before to harvest rain water, we're giving away $25 gift cards (courtesy of Blue Grass) each week between May 9 - July 4. What do you have to do to win one? It's super simple: take a selfie with your installed rain barrel and tweet @greencalgary with the hashtag #rainbarrelselfie.  Or post your rain barrel selfie to Facebook and tag Green Calgary! 

It doesn't have to be one of our rain barrels, it just has to be installed and in #yyc! We'll award 1 gift card each week during the contest with winners announced on Mondays.

We can’t wait to see your #rainbarrelselfies, and celebrate all the water being saved this year!
