We live in a society where we are having to become more conscious about the world around us because our environment needs us to look after it. Therefore, little everyday things like recycling is now more important than ever.
There is a Turkish company called Pugedon, which has come up with an ingenious way of not only getting people to care a little bit more about the environment, but is also providing a way for people to help the strays of their community.
It has recently introduced a vending machine that allows people to release food for the city’s stray cats and dogs but recycling a plastic bottle. So every time someone drops in a plastic bottle to the deposit, it releases out food for animals. The vending machine also has space for people to empty out their water bottles for the animals as well.
The best part of this wonderful service is that it doesn’t charge anything, so both people and the city don’t pay because the recycled plastic items are the currency. The company is the one doing the financial investment that is doing a lot of good for the community. They are providing steady sources of food for the stray animals – many of whom rely on the kindness of people to regularly feed them. Plus, they are encouraging people to get into the good habit of recycling which will help us preserve our environment for the generations to come.
What do you think of this? Would you like to see more of these vending machines around the world? Let us know!
