This Machine Recycles Bottles and Feeds Stray Animals at the Same Time

Recycling

Istanbul, Turkey is home to about 150,000 stray cats and dogs among its 14 million citizens. With such a high number of animals roaming the streets, the government has tried to come up with ways to relieve the issue, including stray banishment from the city.

The concept is simple — just place a plastic or glass bottle into the bin, and food and water is dispensed at the bottom for strays. There’s also a place for users to pour excess water into bowls for the animals.
