'Bin It' Recycling App

Sure, you’ve recycled plastic containers before, but can you: Toss an empty plastic bottle into the recycling bin from across the kitchen …with a monkey screaming overhead? How about on a fashion runway … with paparazzi bears flashing their cameras at you? Or from the three-point line … with a giant penguin as the referee? Add a tricky crosswind that blows your bottles off course to make it even more difficult … and now you’re playing Bin It – a fun and challenging new game that challenges you to recycle! Bin It is now available for free download in the App Store. Toss your plastic bottles into the bin to turn them into new products – see how many recycled t-shirts, sweaters or sleeping bags you can create. Share Bin It with your friends. And remember: ‘Bin It’ on the iPhone, on the iPad and (most importantly) in your everyday life!
