This Invention is Genius!
1 of 11
In Istanbul, Turkey there are approximately 150,000 stray dogs and cats wandering around the streets.
The animals have to fend for themselves, and many struggle to survive.
One company knew there had to be a way to help these poor animals.
Their brilliant idea?
A recycling receptacle turned kibble vending machine!
Basically, whenever people deposit their plastic bottles it dispenses a handful of kibble into a pet bowl below.
It also has a bowl for water where people can deposit any water left in their bottles.
These machines are allowed in Istanbul because the developers promised that the machines were free for the government.
The money for the kibble comes from the money made from the recyclables.
Pretty clever, right?
