Feb. 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Lent is traditionally observed by Christians for 40 weekdays starting on Ash Wednesday, as a season of fasting and penitence in preparation for Easter.  Max wants to do it for those reasons, but mainly because “I’m being good to the birds by encouraging my eco-conscious customers to make them food while the weather is still cold.  So with every Ben the Bin order, I’ll send a Fat Bird Kit too. It means I kill two birds with one stone (metaphorically speaking of course!), as I’m being nice to the customers, so they can be nice to the birdies, and so I can make room for chocolate eggs - it’s a no-brainer!”
Ben the Bin appeared on the BBC show Dragons’ Den (series 5), and has since been a  popular choice for many eco-friendly households, including Arlene phillips’.  Ben is available in pastel pink, baby blue and gentle green, so a set of three is ideal for recycling separation. Ben (RRP: £7.99) is made from 100% recycled plastic, and encourages the re-use of carrier bags.
As this is a limited offer, Max is keen to gift as many Fat Birds to good homes as possible, - “I feel happy that I’m encouraging both recycling and the feeding of hungry birds during Lent, a time of reflection.”
