A Turkish company called Pugedon has come up with a brilliant idea, which in its own words “targets two birds with one stone.” In Istanbul, the company has installed specially designed vending machines that dish out food to stray dogs for every plastic bottle or can deposited in it.

The concept that combines recycling with animal care is paying off as people see their efforts fructifying immediately when they drop a plastic bottle, writes Earth Porm.

The profits made by recycling the collected bottles cover the cost of pet food, notes Mail Online. The vending machines are solar-powered, which further adds to their value as an eco-friendly solution to two problems.
