RainSaucers Make Rainwater Harvesting More Accessible

The company just completed a field trip in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala where they helped families save money by reducing their dependence on bottled water . Although the region has municipal water, it is very unclean and citizens are forced to buy bottled water for fear of water-bourne diseases. Citizens spend about $300 on bottled water which is one month’s income every year. The Guatemalan Saucer is the same as the one in the US except with an extra filtration unit.
