Feed for plastic bottles: how the feeder for homeless animals blowing up the Internet works

How to feed stray animals, help the environment and start a social business: "We never thought our Yapomogabox would create such commotion, and we never suspected it could turn into a social business," Yapomoga said.

A vending machine exchanging plastic bottles for cat and dog food has recently appeared in Kyiv. A special box is near Kotliarevskoho Park at the Lukianivska metro station at 71 Yuria Illienko Street. The initiative belongs to the "Yapomoga" charity organization.

📌 How to use a box machine?

Very easy. You need to put a plastic bottle in a special hole in the box, and 50 grams of food mixed for cats and dogs immediately pours into bowls. In "Yapomoga," they say that if there's a lot of food in the bowl, you can take it with you to feed the animals elsewhere. You should compress bottles and remove lids to make it easier to compress the bottle. And it's better to take plastic containers of detergents to special collecting places because the last box has already been broken by oversized containers.
