Bottles recycling machine / Bottles recycling machine

Bottles recycling machine

In China, the health of drinking water is a heavy problem, especially for poor and homeless,
because of the bacteria of the bad source of potable wat, they become more prone to disease and death.

We design a beverage bottle recycling machine that will provide clean drinking water for the homeless.
The value of the recovery of ten empty bottles is comparable to a bottle of fresh drinking water.
So we set up a program to ensure that every time ten empty bottles are put in, a new bottle of water falls out.
