In the time of COVID-19, making our production sets completely green comes with new challenges, but despite the newest hurdles, we’re encouraged to see new opportunities for eco-friendly practices on set and at home. As a production company, safety is always a priority for all of our employees and we also recognize the importance of reducing our carbon footprint. Our development in green initiatives continues to evolve, and as we grow that pursuit, we’ve committed to the following three tactics on all Squadron sets and in-office as a foundation for our efforts.
- Make the switch to reusable PPE
Disposable Masks and latex gloves are so easy to use but end up in our landfills and oceans. Using a reusable mask that is machine washable or rubber gloves that are able to be washed and disinfected are great substitutes.
- Use Eco-Friendly Cleaners
It is important now more than ever to have cleaning supplies stocked but harsh chemicals have adverse effects on the environment. Using green products is a sure way to keep ourselves and the planet safe.
- Correct Disposal of Food Packaging
We take extra precautions on set to have safely separated food packaging for our employees. It is important to dispose of the packaging properly, by recycling anything we can.
These are our three commitments with more to follow! Our planet needs us and we’re contributing today and everyday!
