Flings Bins Review

As my readers should already know, I am co-director of Abi's Place, a nonprofit organization in South Florida for children with severe disabilities. September 25th, we hosted a Go Green Event, uniting eco-friendly vendors and nonprofits in a family-friendly, fun-filled day. It was a great event at a big county park, with so many generous donations from businesses and members of the community.

One of the best donations we received was from Flings. They sent us two cases of Flings Recycle bins. I had never used their products before, but after seeing a review on another blog, I decided to contact them. I was so excited to show off this product at our event. So many people asked where I got them because they were so cool! Basically, it's a sturdy printed plastic bag with cardboard structures to make them stand. Vendors/customers placed recyclables inside the bins which were located throughout the event pavilion. At the end of the event, we were able to condense them all and place them in a larger bin for recycling - because the entire bin is recyclable. These would be great for picnics, birthday parties, indoor events, etc. Convenient and earth-friendly!

At the end of the day, we raised over $1600 for children with disabilities. We hope to make this an annual event. Thank you, Flings, for helping to make this event a great one!

Three out of three babies agree - this was a great event!
