About Us

Raleigh Rain Barrels was founded by best buds and longtime business partners, Michael Bender and Arthur Tew. Both North Carolina natives, Michael and Arthur (we) took advantage of the internet software boom where we successfully launched a number of products utilized by household brands, such as Kenneth Cole, Vivitar Cameras, Calvin Klein, the Special Olympics, and NBC Universal’s the Today Show, amongst many others. And it’s been a lot of fun.

Now we think it’s time to get back to what really matters to us, PICKLES! OK, not pickles exactly, but their is a connection.

Pickles, as well as lots of other foods, are often stored in large plastic barrels during shipping, curing, and other processes. When they’re done, the barrels are discarded. BOOOO! That’s where we come in.

These barrels just happen to be perfect for capturing and temporarily storing water. So once we realized you can really only utilize one for bathing, we started to think about what else we might do with them. We tried getting inside of them and rolling down hills; Michael was convinced he could go over Niagra Falls in one of them. Fish tanks didn’t really work, not if you want to see your fish at least. But what they do seem to be perfect for is Rain Barrels and irrigation supply.

So with that, we’re now providing an incredibly useful, not to mention money and time saving, product that also betters our planet. And no one has to go over a waterfall.

We love what we’re doing and think you will too. If you’re the slightest bit interested, then go ahead and order one, we’ll deliver it and install it personally. If you’re not satisfied with the finished product, then we’ll give you a full refund.

Oh yeah, and saving the planet and protecting the environment is what matters to us, not that we don’t LOVE a good pickle.
