Flings Bin Review and Giveaway...


Thanks to Flings, we recently had a chance to review this "Recycle" themed pop-up recycling bin:
About Flings:
"TrashCo, Inc. (d/b/a Flings Container) is a privately held company based in Colorado, comprised of a small group of experienced entrepreneurs who are dedicated to bringing radically simpler and more convenient trash and recycling solutions to market.
Our consumer research has highlighted several major opportunities in the trash and recycling category. Consumers are concerned about the durability and "floppiness" of trash bags, as well as the inconvenience and appearance of trash bins. Recycling is seen as desirable by almost all consumers, but convenience issues often get in the way of doing what they know is "right". These concerns are heightened in the context of parties and other events, where trash and recycling needs are generated away from their everyday trash and recycling receptacles.
Our mission is to help make the whole process simpler, cleaner and more fun. In other words, to "make clean-up and recycling a snap." We will do that via a series of creative, proprietary innovations. Flings is also dedicated to leading the way in materials and manufacturing processes that minimize the carbon footprint of our products. Watch for both new products and new materials coming from Flings!
We hope that you will try our new Flings Party and Recycling Containers as they become available near you. Or try purchasing them online in the meantime. We think you will love them, and we look forward to your feedback!New Flings Pop-Up Bins make trash and recycling collection easier in your home, at events, or when you're on the go. Flings start out flat for easy storing and portability, and then pop up in a flash whenever and wherever you need them. The decorative patterns are attractive for all occasions and help signal where the trash and recycling are supposed to go. Who ever though that trash and recycling containers could be so easy -- or so much fun?
These bins are convenient, portable, and always ready to use. Place them around your event and let trash and recycling clean-up take care of itself so you can sit back and enjoy the party. Afterward, just tie and toss or recycle and re-use. Flings Bins really make cleanup a snap! Every Flings Bin is 13 gallon tall kitchen size and leak proof so you never have to worry about a thing.
You can use them anytime and anywhere: dinner parties, graduation, music festivals, tailgating, picnics in the park, weddings, holiday gatherings, sports games, at home, and more!
4 for $15.99 10 for $29.99"

What we thought: These bins are pretty cool. They come in a variety of colors and themes, including the neat Halloween and Christmas-y versions above. I like that there is a "recycle" themed bin so your guests know where everything goes:) At our house, people are always asking "Do you recycle?" when it's time to throw the soda cans away. With this bin, there is no question:) Our bin was sturdy and stood up well to holding everything we filled it with.

Buy It: You can find Flings Pop-Up Bins at a store near you! Check the store locator for your nearest retailer.

Win It: Flings has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader one Birthday Bin and one Recycling Bin!! To enter, tell us when you would use Flings Pop-Up Bins!
