Flings Bins: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis Flings Bins will make recycling not only fun, but convenient at parties, school functions or even just around the house!

materials

One Flings Pop Up Recycling Container, a house party and the time to teach my two daughters the importance of recycling.  About Flings:

flings “Flings recycling containers can keep up to 60 bottles and cans out of landfills – and that’s a win for everyone.

In the kitchen, at a party, on the back deck, at a kid’s soccer game, on a boat, or wherever you need a quick and handy recycling container, Flings stands up to the job. Now you can easily capture all those water bottles, soda cans, wine bottles, you name it. It even works great in an home or small office for paper recycling duties as well.

As we looked at the United States relatively low standing for recycling versus other developing countries, we knew how important it is to help make recycling easier, neater and more fun.
Help us in our mission to make recycling easy and convenient — it’s the right thing to do.”

results Did you know that according to the EPA, only 30% of Americans recycle their garbage?  What would lit take to increase this number?  Does recycling need to be more convenient, neater, more accessible?  Well, the people at Flings have taken all of these excuses into account and created some great pop up recycling containers!

I will admit, we don’t normally recycle in my home because after Hurricane Katrina, we lost our curbside pick up of recyclables.  There just isn’t an easy way to recycle anymore.  So, I was happy to try out the Flings Bins in my home and take the opportunity to teach my two daughters about the importance of saving the Earth.  After removing the outer wrapping, the bin popped up automatically.  Just listen for the snap to ensure the bag in totally upright.  Each bag holds 60 bottles and cans and features a drawstring top making disposal incredibly easy.

Another great aspect of Flings is that is makes answering the question, “Do you recycle?” very easy!  In fact, you may not even hear the question again!  Pop up a Flings Bin next to your garbage can during a party and watch how many people will choose to use it!  We found that our bin was very sturdy and durable.

hypothesis At just $15.99 for a set of 4 bags, Flings makes a great, convenient and attractive way to recycle at a party, sports event or picnic!  I found the bags to by very sturdy and easy to set up and my family enjoyed using them.  You can even get a Fling Pop Up Recycling Container in a print to match your event, such as holiday, birthday or even BBQ!

Having a backyard party?  Need a way to recycle?  Lucky you!  I have one Flings Bin in the Recycle Print to give away to one lucky reader!
