Machine Feeds Stray Dogs In Exchange For Recycled Bottles
In many cities around the world stray dogs are part of city life. One such city is Istanbul, where 150 thousand stray dogs and cats share the streets with 14 million human inhabitants. A clever device by the Turkish company Pugedon aims to increase recycling while providing food and water to stray dogs and waking up our kindness and humanity. Pedestrians can empty their bottles into the machine, which can filter and dispense the water for the local dogs. Each time a plastic bottle is pushed through an opening in the front, a fixed amount of dog food trickles out at the bottom, next to the water.
