Diablo Rain Catcher
These raincatchers are a great water-saving alternative for apartment-dwellers like myself who do not have a downspout or the space for a proper rainbarrel systrem. Admitedly, a large bowl will do the trick, but these raincatchers are a lot more stylish, space efficient and easier to use than running outside with a bunch of bowls whenever the forecast threatens rain. Yes, I actually do this. Use them to save water or to collect rainwater for picky plants such as carnivores and orchids that will not tolerate tap water. Or use them as a vase in the off-season.

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.
