Designer Tanks is the result of Chloe and Ingrid embarking on their very own GOAM – Girls On A Mission!!
In May 2018, Chloe went on an Outward Bound Course and after an overnight mission, was talking to one of the instructors about sustainability. He said he did not want to explain to future generations why we use our precious drinking water to flush our toilets, wash our clothes and water our gardens. This struck a deep chord with Chloe. She went away mulling over the importance of water, how to use it better and how GOAM could be part of the sustainability legacy in New Zealand.
Extensive research proved that rainwater harvesting was very important, not that well-known and most often not an attractive addition to the garden. More research found the Graf Above Ground Rainwater Harvesting tanks provided truly stylish options and more. Designer Tanks make rainwater harvesting a viable and stylish option for gardens. They offer a wide range of tanks that are ideal for homes, retirement villages and schools, in fact anywhere that appearance and the environment are important.
Chloe lives in the beautiful Waikato town of Cambridge. She comes from an IT background and has been a Project Manager for the better part of 15 years in both large enterprises and smaller owner operated businesses.
When she isn’t working, you will find her running the trails, training for triathlons or doing Yin Yoga. By her own admission, she is not a “natural athlete” and has to work very hard to achieve her goals, including her first ultra-marathon at Tarawera 2019.
People often ask her why she loves trail running so much and her response is always the hard work, discipline and consistency required to achieve the distances makes her so much stronger in every area of her life.
Ingrid also lives in Cambridge and has spent the majority of her career as a dispensary technician in pharmacy. One day while out walking with Chloe, where she had no option but to listen to the Outward Bound story, the idea of GOAM - Designer Tanks came up. It was something Ingrid also felt quite passionate about so she jumped at the opportunity to get involved.
Ingrid hung up her technician hat and went about her massive career change joining Designer Tanks and she hasn't looked back.
