Flings R and G






CLOSED
Hi Again Neighbors,

So glad to catch you out here At the Fence. I have this really neat product to share. Flings, pop-up recycling and trash containers. These are really handy. They come collapsed, and you pop them up and with a snap they are full-size containers that you can use at parties, cook outs and camping, for trash or recycling. How many times have you had a party or cook out and wished you had something other than a large black trash bag or several shopping bags to place trash in? Well, here is your solution....Flings! You receive 4 of them for $15.99. You could re-use them a couple of times too if your trash is not real messy.



We received the Birthday Bin and put it out for Fathers Day, and just paper type trash. It is beginning to look a little rough so we will be disposing of it soon. I was even able to re-collapse the Fling Bin.



Some information from Flings:

"How were Flings conceived? The original inspiration came from a Bay Area inventor, Ed Austin, who recognized that there are many occasions where trash gets created away from primary trash and recycling receptacles … what we’ve come to call “surge trash” situations. Ed did some interesting product concepting to solve these issues and came to us. We subsequently worked with Ed to refine the product concepts, develop a manufacturable design, and do the necessary product, packaging and sourcing work. Parties and gatherings were one of the most challenging situations for consumers, so that’s where it started. As you can see, it’s been a real team effort.

How do Flings work? They couldn’t be easier. Flings come in a handy compressed state for easy portability. When you get to where you need to, just tear off the paper tape, pop them open, and they’re ready for use. When full, just pull up the skirt, tie with the handy drawstring and toss! In the case of the recycle bin, many consumers tell us they like to use it daily inside as their recycling collection point, then dump periodically into their main recycle bin, and re-use"

I would love to win this so we could have something on our deck for cookouts that doesn't always have to be taking up a ton of space. I love that it just pops up

I'd like one for when the neighborhood kids are over and in my back yard. I could set it up for their snack and juice box trash.

The way I would use these: We have 3 bdays in one month (and an anniversary) so I could use the bday one for all the gift opening trash.
