When it comes to throwing parties, I don't fret over food or panic over parking. I worry about waste. I worry about the beer bottles piling up on the bar, and the garbage overflowing in the kitchen. There are times when a household receptacle is just too small and a flimsy trash bag hanging from a doorknob just won't cut it. Enter Flings Pop-Up Bins.Flings is a freestanding container and trash bag in one. It is a 100% biodegradable bin for managing trash and recyclables at parties. You can set up several Flings around the house and not have to worry about taking out the trash in the middle of a party... or even worse, scooping up spilled garbage from a torn or overflowing trash bag. You can even bring these portable Flings outdoors to campsites and picnics where there's no trash can nearby.
Flings are meant to be disposable, cinching up like regular trash bags to be put outside. But they're sturdy enough to be folded back down and reused later, if your trash wasn't particularly messy.
I find them to be most convenient for separating recyclables from trash. Often times after a party, I dutifully pick out cans from the wastebasket or collect bottles left on counters (mostly with good intentions from guests who didn't know where to recycle them). But Flings Pop-Up Bins &mdash available in an array of patterns and colors, including a green one designated for recycling &mdash should make party clean-up a snap this season.
