next product is for those who are truly “greening their routine”.
Envirobank has figured out a way that consumers can deposit their
recyclables in a conveniently located machine, and give them a cash
reward for their ecologically sound actions. These machines have been
called “reverse vending machines” as users give aluminum cans to the
machine, and it gives them money right back.
In addition to aluminum cans, these machines accept PET, HDPE, and
PVC recyclable materials as well as brown, clear, and green glass. My
sources say that some of these machines can hold up to 3,000
I am assuming that some recycler
eventually comes by and picks up all the drop-offs, replenishes the
money slot, and the recyclables will already be cleaned and crushed. I
believe that in order to receive the payments for the recycled trash,
the user needs to watch a video via an LCD screen on the machine
This new system of reverse vending machines has already been
deployed in Australia, but only on a trial basis. Personally, I think a
system like this could easily change the world, and maybe even save the
Earth in the process.
