Plastics Make It Possible(R) Unveils Recycling Vending Machine at New York Fashion Week
AVT Designed System Makes News Across the Nation as a Shining Example of the Growing $1.1 Trillion Automated Retailing Market

CORONA, Calif., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leader in automated retailing systems, micro-stores and kiosks, announced that an innovative self-service recycling redemption system they designed, was on display for three days during New York Fashion Week. During this high-visibility event, consumers could "buy" a limited edition designer T-shirt from the machine, by using a plastic bottle as currency. Anyone passing by could simply deposit a plastic bottle into the machine and a beautiful new garment made with recycled plastics was dispensed.

The new machine was built for Plastics Make it Possible, who partnered with New York fashion designer Allison Parris for the debut of the automated redemption center, which was located by Columbus Circle on 8(th) Avenue.

The AVT-designed system was located in one of the most densely populated areas of New York City, with an estimated 350,000 pedestrians and another 115,000 drivers/passengers passing through each day.

Celebrities like Perez Hilton stopped by the vending machine to recycle beverage bottles and receive a trendy t-shirt. The online gossip columnist even posted a short video on Instagram with the comment: "The coolest thing ever on the street of #nyc!"

"We are thrilled to be a part of this event and help raise awareness for recycling," Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT said. "We look forward to building many more of these innovative machines that give people an easy way to recycle, while getting something fun in return."

The initiative was sponsored by America's Plastics Makers(TM) of the American Chemistry Council.
