Special Note – There is a segment in the beginning of today’s show about Jan Cline, a woman dying of bone cancer who has had her back yard yard sale shut down due to an idiotic city ordnance. Please listen to it and consider donating a little bit to help Jan Cline out in this tough time. You an do that here, I have verified that this is a legitimate way to donate and the funds will go directly to Jan.
On to our man subject, Today our guest is Tom Spargo. Tom independent research and business development consultant to
major Japanese companies in the Silicon Vally clean technology industry.
Tom realized several years ago that clean water wasn’t getting any attention and started thinking about solutions. Tom discovered rainwater harvesting and came up with his own take on the concept which addressed many typical rain harvesting shortcomings.
To address this Tom invented RainSaucers in 2009 and got funding from social venture capital in 2010. He launched product this year and now has distributors online and in a few cities.
Today Tom joins us to discuss rain harvesting by the traditional method of roof hook up and how they can save on your water bill. We then discuss rain barrels with RainSaucers and the new things you can do such as having a new source of potable water (they are trialing this in Guatemala) and setting up a completely off-grid tomato crop (Tom is doing this in my backyard).
