This Ingenious Vending Machine Feeds Homeless Animals

The company Pugedon has come up with an effective way to both look after the environment and care for animals living on the streets. In one city, they set up vending machines which fill up special trays with food when an empty plastic bottle is placed in them. The profit made from the recycled bottles covers the costs of providing the food for the animals.

On the streets of Istanbul, there are more than 100,000 homeless dogs and cats.

This machine lets people feed some of these homeless animals for free.

They also have a special bowl to provide the animals with a drink. You can pour out any water you have on you if you don’t want it yourself.

This video shows the machines in action.

Hopefully these machines will one day appear in every city. Well done to their inventors for helping to make the world a better place!
