PGA Green’s first meeting of the year kicked off the launch of our 2103 Speaker Series! Kris Barberg spoke on behalf of EcoSet and was joined by Jamie Bullock and Amy Hammes. Founded in 2009 EcoSet is an environmental production resource committed to implementing customized, practical, and sustainable environmental solutions for commercial productions. EcoSet’s mission is : mitigate waste, minimize footprint, maximize resources and magnify possible.
EcoSet primarily works in the advertising/commercial industry but most of their best practices apply to TV and film production as well. Kris mentioned that PGA Green’s GreenProductionGuide.com is a great resource they often use even though they don’t work in feature film.
Since 2009, EcoSet has used 2,700 5 gallon jugs of water which has kept 103,000 plastic water bottles from being used. They have diverted 232 tons of trash from landfills!
