Flings Bins Pop-up, Review & Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered.

Say goodbye to ugly smelly trash cans during your gatherings. I know I have. I am now in love with Flings Bins! Never heard of them? Fling Bins are decorative trash and recycle containers. They start out flat, so they are easy to store and then pop up in seconds. Perfect for any party. With so many designs to chose from, there is one to add a nice touch to your decor for any occasion. At the same time making it easy to gather and separate trash and recyclables. What a fun and sensible idea! I love the classic look of the recycling design. Guests can’t help but spot it, which means less mess to clean up at the party’s end.


Helping with the clean up and making it easy to do our share for the environment. How could I not fall in love with this product? I’m betting you will too.

The nice people at Flings Bins sent me a couple of bins to try out. I opened them just in time for Super Bowl Sunday. I opened and popped the bin up within seconds, just as claimed. Come Monday morning, instead of picking up and sorting recyclables off my counter tops and tables it was done for me! Nice and neat in the bin.
I am now keeping a Flings Bin in my kitchen for easy access and it’s working. Even the kids are adding their cans to it instead of leaving them on the sink for mom to take care of. I view this as a victory for mom! Thank you Flings Bins!


Portable, attractive, convenient, and easy-to-spot, Flings make clean-up part of the fun – at every gathering, every time!

You can win two Birthday Flings to try for yourself. All you have to do is leave me a comment saying how you and your family are becoming part of the solution to help the environment.

One lucky winner will be contacted by email on February 25, 2010.

    No more plastic or paper bags for us at the grocery when possible. We use the reusable cloth now. 🙂

  17. I volunteer at my church\’s free clothing giveaway. We take clothes headed for the landfill, sort them, and hang them up so the community can come and \”shop\” free of charge. The clothes that are not fit to be given away are then looked over and buttons, zippers, etc are taken from them. Some of us even take the unusable items and turn them into something else ie. blankets, purses, other clothing items.

  18. My family and I have switched over all of the light bulbs in our house, we started composting, we are trying to use re-usable shopping bags for everything.
