In response to Turkey's overwhelming stray dog population, a new system of smart recyclying boxes by Pugedon, takes recyclables and, in exchange, automatically provides food and water for the animals.

The device encourages passersby to recycle and look at our animal co-inhabitants with different eyes. The principle of the machine is very simple – it has containers for water (you can pour the remaining water from your bottle before recycling it) and for dog food. A fixed ratio of kibbles is dispensed when a bottle is recycled. The project is independent from the government and covers the cost of the food with the recycled bottles.
