Recycled bottles feed stray dogs in Istanbul


Sometimes it's hard to find the good in the world, especially these days with planes being shot out of the sky, wars all over the place and a plague in Africa. I mean what else can happen right? Well today I found a wonderful piece of information on one of my favorite websites called Unconsumption that I am sure will make you smile. 

Pugedon, a Turkish company, has created a vending machine that dispenses food for stray animals when you deposit your empty bottle or can into the slot on the side. Just pop your bottle or can into the machine and food comes out the bottom. If you put some water in the corresponding water slot, this water will also be dispensed at the bottom in a separate dish. These machines cost the city nothing and the recycled bottles cover the cost of the food. What a wonderful way to feed the stray animals who are often starving and reliant on our help. Now doesn't that make you feel better? It certainly did me. Here's the video.
