In collaboration with Partners in Project Green, Calstone, a green furniture manufacturer, is undertaking an innovative project that will include collecting and irrigating, storing or infiltrating rainwater from their 42,000 square foot roof.
Partners in Project Green’s objective is to showcase lot-level stormwater management techniques to lower the burden on aging municipal stormwater management infrastructure. The eventual goal is to increase and replicate the number of stormwater management infrastructure initiatives in the Greater Toronto Area by taking a collaborative approach to their completion
“The idea started as a rainwater harvesting tank and some raspberry bushes. With the help of Partners in Project Green, the project has grown and we’re now committed to capturing 100% of the rainfall of our roof.” Jim Ecclestone, CEO/President, Calstone Inc.
