Divert for 2nd Life – D2L

A zero waste recovery group in Singapore

We are passionate about diverting away from the bin, items that could still have a second life, and specialise in recovering unsellable items with a shelf life that would otherwise be discarded.

How impactful can food recovery be?

Every 3kg of food discarded
is equivalent to 23.3kg of carbon emissions.

According to BBC Smart Guide to Climate Change

What We Do

We have been recovering items from various F&B/lifestyle businesses such as bakeries, cafes, restaurants, grocers, distributors, wholesalers, hotels, retailers and farms since 2018.

We recover anything deemed unsellable, such as:

– Items past their best before date
– Expired items
– items with compromised packaging (damaged, torn, recalled)
– leftovers at the end of the day (fresh, cooked or prepared food)
– blemished / ugly food, etc.
