A Cradle to Cradle Gold certified product, the RainTube is made of 100 percent recycled HDPE (the widely-recycled plastic with the number 2 on it), 98 percent of which is post-consumer content. Relatively simple in design, the RainTube fits into gutters, keeping debris out of the gutter while funneling rainfall like any typical gutter.
It's also completely recyclable, is manufactured with little water and no waste, and its only packaging is a few strips of HDPE twine. It can also help buildings earns LEED points for erosion and sedimentation control, water use reduction, recycled content, and innovative design.
All that and more earned it Green Building Pages' Production & Manufacturing Award, Social Sustainability Award, Global Climate Product Award and Sustainable Product Award. The RainTube shares the Installation, Use & Maintenance Award with six other products, and is one of three products to earn the End Of Product Life Award.
