Roll out the rain barrels

The Green Team at St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Monona, Wis., pulled out all the stops (even a toilet) to launch its Earth Day "Roll Out the Rain Barrel" event.

The Green Team at St. Stephen Lutheran The team sold 30 rain barrels, charging between $5 and $55 for those without modifications to those with all the "bells and whistles."

Each collects 55 gallons, for a total of 1,650 gallons of water saved — enough to run 82.5 dishwasher cycles.

The toilet (with a water-displacing jug inserted into the tank) reminded worshipers to conserve water during the city's "Year of the Water" emphasis.
