I love the “natural” pouch too.

That was the first part.  The soap was gone and I was about to throw the bottle in the recycle bin.  Then it hit me, 'You know, the top of this thing looks kind of like a pouch...'

I know that feeling. I had a plan for my trash sling, but then today I found myself squirreling away new trash and thinking I could make a sling from an unexpected source. I might have to do multiple entries.

This may have already been covered but I like the concept and am so ready to get started I have no time to read this whole thread to see if this had been previously discussed...

So what constitutes and defines trash? 
Some people have some unique garbage...

How do we know someone isnt gonna say "well of course I threw away the hair from my horse's tail and mane after I shaved them" or some outlandish thing lol...   Wink

I think it will have to be a case by case basis. By the way, I have a load of sisal fibre just hanging around in a bin so I think that's probably trash...

So far we have left it up to self-interpretation. When the competition is big enough that we have a $10,000 cash prize, we may have to rethink that a bit.

I think I spelled it out more last year. The main criteria for trash is that you can’t buy something (like a roll of yarn) just to make the sling, but it’s ok to use store-bought things like yarn or glue as long as the majority of the sling is “trash”.

Here’s my original description:

NooneOfConsequence wrote on Nov 10th, 2019 at 11:48am:
Ok, I have a challenge for y’all... the trash sling challenge!  This isn’t a slinging skill challenge, it’s a sling making competition. I want to see what happens when people get creative with new sling materials and building styles.
Here’s the idea: make a sling from anything, but you aren’t allowed to spend any money on it at all. The sling should be capable of launching a tennis ball at least 5 times in a row (video proof) before it falls apart. You should have at least two different materials in the sling. Bonus points for creativity, complexity, and video production quality. Emphasis is on making the sling from TRASH... i.e.  I don’t want you to wander into the woods and make a sling entirely out of scavenged natural fibers, but you could, for example scavenge natural cordage and then make a pouch out of newspaper or a broken plastic cup.

Good luck!

Cabinets and drawers are for the filthy bourgeoisie. I keep my supplies in my garbage can along with my other trash like a sensible man.

The only sensible thing to do is make a sling out of the garbage can itself!

Finally got around to working on my trash sling again.  I’ll be throwing with it tomorrow if I can, and then I will need to work on the video. Here’s a little preview/teaser.
