Flings Pop-Trash and Recycle bins help clean up one million tons of holiday waste
Tuesday, November 09, 2010
ENGLEWOOD, CO (November 10, 2010) - The holiday season is the least eco-friendly time of year in America according to the EPA. The average American household generates 25 percent more waste during the holiday season. This totals more than one million tons of additional household waste nationwide.* Keeping all the wrapping paper, cards, boxes and party supply waste under control is a challenge faced by every family and holiday party host.
Historically a lot of material that could be recycled ends up in the landfill because it simply isn’t convenient to recycle during the holidays. But new Flings Pop-Up Trash & Recycle Bins have found a way to make holiday clean-up and recycling easy and fun. No more unsightly trash bags tied to doorknobs during parties or recycling mixed in with trash. Flings Bins are decorative, portable containers that 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 allowing the portable containers to go directly from the party to the curb.
Flings Pop-Up Recycle Bins feature the universal recycling logo, so they’re easy to see at a party and signal to guests where to recycle. Each recycle bin saves 60 cans or bottles from the landfill and is extra strong and leak-proof so it can be reused.
“When hosting a holiday party, providing plenty of visible trash and recycling containers for guests allows you to enjoy your time with them rather than focusing on the cleanup. You can prevent an unsightly overflow of cans, bottles and wrapping paper by setting out Flings Bins,” said Jeanne Benedict, nationally acclaimed party planner. “Convenient Flings Pop-Up Trash and Recycle bins are packaged flat so they will not take up additional storage space in your home. I recommend keeping them on hand for any holiday gatherings that pop-up at the last minute. They also make great hostess gifts”
Flings Pop-Up Trash Bins are available in three Holiday patterns to fit any décor. They are available in the holiday section or paper products and trash bag aisles at select retailers. A complete selection is also available at www.FlingsBins.com.
