Television commercial shoots and large-scale events produce a lot of waste. Productions have to work fast, in distant locations, and often, don’t have alternatives other than to throw away perfectly good materials. In partnership with an innovative company called EcoSet Consulting, Native Sustainability has worked with large corporate clients, including Target and Levi’s, to manage all of the waste produced from shoots and events by implementing commercial grade composting, as well as extensive recycling and material repurposing. On average, these projects divert more than 90 percent of the materials from the waste stream. This work is being implemented across the world, teaching best practices in countries that don’t yet have established composting and recycling systems in place. The best part is that everyone benefits: the client bolsters their existing corporate social responsibility and community goals, community organizations receive goods for reuse and repurposing, and literally tons of reusable materials are diverted from the landfill.

This work is applicable to events large and small - from 20 person meetings, to marathons!
