It sounds too good to be true, but parks across Mexico City, Mexico are cropping up with dog poo WiFi stations. Dog owners in the area now have a new incentive to be responsible owners and pick up after their pet, because every deposited bag of poo earns free WiFi minutes from Terra, Mexican internet portal.
The special receptacle weighs your dog’s “deposit” and offers up a corresponding number of free WiFi minutes for everyone in the park.
“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,” says an article on CBC News.
This is a fantastic idea, in my personal opinion, considering how most people these days are more interested in what’s going on with their smart phones than their dogs’ business.
What do you think? Would you want one of these stations at your local park?
