“For last year’s words belong to last year’s
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

T.S. Eliot, “Little Gidding” (the fourth poem of Four Quartets)

Happy New Year! We’re taking a cue from T.S. Eliot and embracing new beginnings in 2012. What better way to create the new than with the upcycled old?

“Freedom is responsibility to explore,” says Sourabh Phadke, 25-year-old architect and ecology teacher whose radical focus on upcycling trash to build schools and homes in India is the subject of our B.U.G. Design section.

Speaking of voices, we want to hear yours in our beginning of the year customer satisfaction survey. We’re offering a discount to say thanks once you’ve completed the survey. (*You must have purchased a HOG tank within the last 5 years in order to be eligible.)

Brrr, it’s cold outside. We talked with distributor Frank Koll, of GreenScapes Lawn and Garden Service, who has firsthand experience with winterizing HOG tanks. Check out his tips on preparing your HOG system for the winter season.

January 2012: HOG Customer Satisfaction Survey

We’ve put together a 10-question survey to take stock of how HOG tanks are working for you. What do you like most? What would you change? Here’s your chance to sound-off on what’s  good, what’s inspired, and what needs improvement when it comes to your modular Rainwater HOG catchment system.

Click here to take the survey.

In order to complete the survey, you’ll need to have purchased (and preferably installed) at least one Rainwater HOG tank in the last five years.
