Ending That Studio Waste

February 13, 1996|CONNIE KOENENN

The campaign starts this week with a quarter-page ad in Daily Variety: "Meet Your Specs, Fit Your Budget, Save Your Planet, http://www.epg.org."

That's the address for the Environmental Production Guide, a website for the industry. It was created by the Environmental Media Assn., which encourages green themes and green production behavior. Says President Andy Goodman: "An average studio can divert more than 1,200 tons of wood from landfills in one year by reusing the wood they purchase for set building."

For the filmmaker who signs on, it will offer information as complex as how to set up an environmental program for an entire studio or as simple as how to find the best recycled paper for scripts.
