When It Rains, It Pours

Designed by the Quirky Community in just 24 hours, Petal Drops is a flower shaped funnel that fits on top of standard threaded water & soda bottles providing you with a chance to elegantly and easily capture rain water, and repurpose it for watering your plants. Rainy days may not seem so bad anymore!

Constructed out of 100% recycled HDPE, Petal Drops’ beautiful form and flower shape makes it something you would not mind placing in your garden or on your patio - it may even blend right in! Simply set it down in your desired location and place some pebbles or pennies in the bottle if it’s a particularly windy day. Once it starts to rain, you’ll watch as the petals act as a super funnel — collecting & storing rain water efficiently in that bottle you were o-so-close to chucking.

Once full, pour out the water wherever you choose… feed that thirsty plant, wash the chalk off your driveway, give fido a bath, etc. As ‘they’ say… every little bit counts.
