Second Chance is a revolutionary start-up recycling tracking service developed using an expansive database of UPC and QR product codes that informs consumers of the recycling status of an item based on the regulations of their area. Through a sophisticated app, consumers can learn all they need to know about recycling policy, pick-up date changes, their personal/municipality’s greenness rating, staying sustainable, and keeping their carbon footprint as low as possible.
