CLOSED Eco Friendly Fling Bins Review and Giveaway ENDS 6/18/2010

Pin It Now! THIS Giveaway is NOW CLOSED Winner will be posted Monday June 21st after 10:00 PM


  I am always on the look out for products that will help our family in our Quest to go Green and while unfortunately we still buy pop and have returnables to take back to the store I hate to store them in plastic garbage bags while they await their trip back to the store to be recycled, so when I stumbled upon Fling Bins I was so excited when they offered me the opportunity to review a Fling Bin and offer my readers the opportunity to win some Fling Bins of their own.
   I was given the Fling Bin in the recycle pattern and what I love as while it is not huge it does hold quite a few cans and it is nice enough to keep it in the corner of our kitchen which saves me many trips down to the basement, which is where we used to keep the trash bag of empties since it was not nice to store in the kitchen, my Fling Bin fits nicely in the corner under our microwave out of everyone's way but so nice and handy to get to.

 I love to how it collapses when not in use, also we can take it camping with us and it would not take up any packing space at all. We are having a big Kick off the Summer bash in a couple weeks and it will be so nice to show off our Fling Bin to our guests and have it out in the yard for everyone to throw their empty cans into.
Here is some info from the Fling Bins site.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS






How did Flings Pop-Up Trash Containers come about?

Flings Containers are the result of several different groups of people converging and collaborating on a novel idea. This includes an inspired inventor who saw the need for a disposable, but attractive, trash container; several specialists in materials, product development, sustainability and marketing; and a small, aggressive band of entrepreneurs. (As they say, it takes a village...)

Why did Flings start with Party Containers?

Well, we listened to consumers via research. Consumers told us that they had no good solutions for managing trash or recycling at parties, picnics or other events -- just dirty old trash cans or a bag hung over a doorknob. And since we really like a good party, too -- we figured this was a great place to start! But there are so many uses for Flings.. watch for other Flings containers coming soon.

Can I re-use my Flings Container?

That's totally up to you. In some cases, people have told us that they've been able to re-use the containers by dumping party trash or recycling into their ordinary containers. It seems to be largely a function of how messy the trash was. Ultimately, though, our goal was to make the bin inexpensive enough that it could be placed in either the waste or recycling stream. Over time, you'll find what works for you.

How should I dispose of my Flings Recycling Container?

Flings Recycling Containers are completely recyclable in many recycling processing centers. Flings are designed to make it easier to capture recyclable items such as bottles and cans. They are especially helpful during parties, picnics and events when guests often don't know what to do with recycling. Flings help keep recycling and trash separate -- making recycling a snap!

Where can I find Flings?

We're a brand new company and it's going to take a little while to get it into all stores near you. Current outlets can be seen on our News and Partners page. But please check back here periodically to see which retailers have added Flings.

Some of the ways my family has gone green is:

Changing to all cfl bulbs.
Using cloth diapers.
Turning lights and electronics off when not in use.
Trying to use less water (but that's a hard one)
Some recycling (really need to do more)
