It was great meeting @threesquaresinc at 24 Hours of Reality 2018 at Los Angeles Historic Park earlier this month.
As it so happens, film productions have a nasty reputation for wasting and improper disposal of materials. Enter Three Sqaures Inc.!
Each day of production they held a meeting (as seen above) where they debriefed the production crew on how to properly dispose of their waste on set.
We also had set up 4 options for dumpsters: compost, landfill, recycling and construction/demolition (as seen in photos). At one point when I found catering dumping excess food waste (non-meat) into the landfill I asked them to use the compost bags and use the compost dumpster. They replied that they green compost bags tended to tear open while they carried them so they used garbage bags instead. I offered the idea that they could use a milk crate to transport the compost bags and thankfully they listened and the new plan worked minimizing any spillage.
It was great to have the support of Three Squares Inc to help make our set as green as humanly possible!
Imagine if every production set were able to properly sort their waste–it would surely reduce the environmental impact of the modern entertainment industry.
