Divert for 2nd Life – D2L

A rescue group in Singapore for zero waste

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

How impactful can food rescue be?

For every 3 kilos of food that you rescue, an estimated 7.5 kilos of CO2 is rescued.

What We Do

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

We rescue whatever is unsellable, such as items that are expired / past their best before dates, items with damaged packaging, damaged / compromised / recalled items, leftovers at the end of the day (for fresh / perishable food such as cooked / prepared food), blemished / ugly food, etc.
