Why Choose TRB



Desert Plastics is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a city that averages less than 9 inches of rain per year. We know something about saving water! We have been manufacturing rain barrels into this market for 7 years and we are now the #1 rain barrel manufacturer in the entire southwest. Thanks to the suggestions of our many customers, our products have become the highest value, most well thought-out barrels available in the U.S. We have recently passed the 1,000,000 gallon milestone in the Albuquerque area alone. This is more than (3) Acre / Feet of valuable ground water saved every time it rains!! To highly paraphrase Abe Lincoln: “You can’t fool that many people!”



Be Careful! Be Picky! Be Intelligent!

It is our core philosophy that you are intelligent and that we should address you and service you in that manner.

Please notice our website. We do not ask you to believe flowery claims, illogical statements, and impossible-to-check testimonials while claiming to support and/or belong to a host of environmental groups. The internet is full of very friendly-looking, well-produced web sites that make such claims. Apparently, the main idea is that you will become so enamored with the website that you will overlook the fact that the product is only marginally designed, and will soon be a disappointment. This is an insult to your intelligence and certainly not a good place for you to spend your hard-earned money.
