Creativity vs Climate Change
Closing down a production office? Spare a thought for the creative potential that’s trapped inside your stationary and make sure it gets a good home.

On average, travel contributes 30% to the environmental footprint of a production. Luckily there is a lot we can do about that. Be a super hero, ask your cast and crew to share cars, don’t fly in the UK, hire efficient production vehicles and consider how editorially, on-screen transport choices can influence viewers.
Even an efficient long run production can gobble up 2 million sheets of paper a year. End-to-end that would stretch for 600 km. Scripts, movement orders, call sheets or menus: When you need to print, do so on both sides of the paper.
If you have a cast and crew of over 200 working on location, chances are you’ll dispose of well over 200 bottles per day, but is doesn’t have to be that way. Why not provide reusable water bottles, or better still, ask people to bring their own.
Be your own person, BYOB.
Efficient vehicles can save big bucks and countless carbon. Whether hiring unit vehicles, taxis, couriers or production run-arounds; look for the greenest option.
Whether it is paper in production, clothes in costume or mascara in make-up; use it up or donate it to others.
The sustainable production wheels are a turnin’, don’t get left behind – you might look silly.
There are plenty of ways to reduce the environmental impact of your production.
