Recycle Empty Bottles for Furry Friends

After downing that thirst-quenching summer drink, was there a time when you thought of turning your empty plastic bottle or soda can into something more useful other than throwing it in the recycling bin? In Istanbul, they can be used to provide food for dogs and cats immediately! Pugedon, a Turkish company, recently introduced an innovative vending machine that releases water and food for our stray furry friends, in exchange for recyclables.

As seen in the photo below, people can deposit their bottle through the slot on top and a portion of food is dispensed to the next pup (or kitty) that comes along. As for operations, the profit made from the recycled bottles or cans are used to cover the cost of pet food. Plus, it’s all solar-powered!

Kudos to Pugedon for giving their stray animals a chance, while doing their part in saving the planet, one recyclable at a time.
