A Turkish company called Pugedon has introduced a vending machine in Istanbul that accepts plastic bottles for recycling and dispenses food and water for stray dogs in return. That’s right, it helps protect the environment as well as provides sustenance to animals.

omeless animals and garbage are just two of the many problems cities grapple with. Last month a Turkish company unveiled an ingenious machine that targets both of those issues, combining recycling and feeding stray dogs.

The Pugeon Smart Recycling Box releases kibble in exchange for trash, reminiscent of the machines at grocery stores that give you a nickel for cans and plastic bottles.
