The internet company Terra, which operates out of the U.S. and 16 Spanish-speaking countries, has come up with an eco-friendly if not eccentric idea – a receptacle that distributes Wi-Fi minutes in exchange for dog waste.
Ten parks in Mexico City already have special garbage cans that encourage people to clean up after their pets by calculating the weight of the items disposed thus providing everyone in range with free internet.
The more crap you collect, the more minutes you and your fellow dog walkers get. Of course, there’s nothing stopping people from just putting trash in the can. According to Creativity Online, they’ve already anticipated this.
“The agency responsible for the program notes that while people may abuse the bins by tossing trash into them for WiFi, any action to keep the streets clean is a positive one.”
