Fling Bins Review and Giveaway



Ok, so last weekend we had “Bug’s” 3rd birthday party and as all parents the worst part of a birthday party that involves small kids is the clean up, am I right? Well when I was introduced to Fling Bins, I knew they would be perfect for “Bug’s” party and the fact that they come in cute party designs to match the festive décor is awesome! So, when I was offered the opportunity to review 2 Fling Bins I was very happy to do so!

About Fling Bins (taken from website):

Put Trash in its Place With Innovative Recycling And Trash Containers

New Flings Pop-Up Bins make trash and recycling easier in your home, at events, parties or on the go. These decorative, portable containers arrive flat for easy storage and pop open in an instant. All Flings Bins have a 13-gallon capacity and feature an easy-to-use drawstring closure. And each Flings Recycle Bin saves 60 cans or bottles from the landfill. Try Flings Pop-Up Bins at your next gathering, big game day party or just around home.

Flings Bins: The Ultimate Collapsible Trash Cans!
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!

Party Pack (2 bins + 2 Recycle Bins) for $15.99

Our Thoughts:

We were sent two Fling Bins to review to use at “Bug’s” birthday party so the designs we were sent was the Celebration Bin and the Birthday Bin. Our bins arrived in plenty of time for “Bug’s” party and I was quite happy to see them to say the least. On the day of the party we set up the bins and let me just stress how easy it is to set these bins up. All you have to do is take the bin from the wrapper and then simply pop it open and make sure the metal straps are stable to make the bin stand and your done! Super simple and easy and best of all you can put them in plain site of your party guest so that they don’t have to wonder where to put their trash once they have eaten their cake and ice-cream and the bins blend right into the party décor so they aren’t an eyesore like a plain black trash bag would be.

I set the two Fling Bins we were sent on each side of my parents bar so that they were easily assessable to each of the guest and the both of them held all the party trash very easily and I was so happy to see that they are leak proof, lets just say with a bunch of kids running around throwing away cups with ice and pop still in them and then bowls of half eaten ice-cream to not have a wet sticky mess when we took out the Fling Bins was so wonderful and make after party clean up a whole lot less work. We just simply tied up the bags and tossed the entire Fling Bin into the dumpster and went about our cleaning of the dishes and such. It really could not have been more convenient nor easier to use Fling Bins vs. traditional trash cans or garbage bags.
(You can see our Fling Bins in the corner, if you want to see more party pics check back in a day or so for a whole post about the party!)
Bottom Line:

I absolutely love Fling Bins and I can guarantee that for all my parties and get together from now on from birthdays, anniversary parties, BBQ’s and holiday parties I will be investing in Fling Bins and I am more than happy to recommend them to everyone I know and those of you whom I don’t know personally because I feel like this is one product I can fully stand behind and I know you will be thrilled with! I do wish though that they would come up with a cute little design for baby showers, I have two to host in the next few months and although I’m planning on using Fling Bins I would love to have a blue and a pink bin for each of the showers ;)!

If you are currently planning a party or get together of some sort I highly recommend picking up a Fling Bin or two for easy trash access and easy clean up to make your job as host a whole lot easier! They also even offer recycle bins so that you can make sure your guest separate the recyclables from the trash for you for easy disposal.

  24. I would love the Recycle Bin because we have parties quite often and we recycle but not everyone knows how to recycle. If they could at least get them into the Fling Bin then we could sort it later instead of having to sort through all of the trash.
