Flings Bins - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I love the holidays for all the gatherings, gifts, and meals. But with more people comes more trash.  Flings make trash pickup and recycling easier with their pop-up bins in different designs and colors. Flings recycling containers are made up of biodegradable and recycled materials, with different patterns and designs to fit your event needs. They arrive in compact form and easily pop up when ready for use. There are reinforcements on the sides and bottom so it doesn't tip over or fall flat. Once you are completely done with your Flings Bin, all you have to do is tie it up like a garbage bag and toss it with your other trash.

Flings Bins are folded down when you first get them.  Set-up is super easy.  All you have to do is pull the top away from the bottom and pop the reinforcement rods in place at the sides.  I received a pop-up recycle bin with the universal recycle logo printed on it and another Flings with a seasonal snowflake pattern. Flings Bins are wrinkly and crinkly, and stand upright when set up.


Flings containers are the size of a 13 gallon trash bag.  They are portable and convenient, especially when there are no trash cans nearby. After a Flings bin is full, all you have to do is lift up the top flap and tie it together like a regular trash bag.  I think they'd be especially perfect when you are camping or hosting an outdoor event.
I used the snowflake pattern Flings recently when I held a family gathering in my home.  Rather than having people open and close my pantry door several times to throw waste in my regular trash can, I set the Flings in the corner of my kitchen and guests discarded their trash in it.  When the party was over, I set the Flings bin outside to be taken on trash day.  It was much prettier and more festive than my regular ole' trash can.

As for the Pop-Up Recycle Bin, it's come in handy for me to put my recyclables in until I'm ready to take them outside and put them in the city pickup bin.  I've been using the Pop-Up Recycle bin for some time now and it's still standing firm.  It's not hard to just walk outside and throw stuff in the city bin to begin with, but it's much more convenient to have the Flings bin in my kitchen and throw recyclables in it.  Then I just bring it back in the house and use it all over again.

Win It!

One person will win a Pop-Up Recycle Bin and a Snowflake Pattern Bin from Flings.

I like the recycling symbol one because it can be used to politely tell guests to recycle.
