Green Filmmaking

Green is the new black

All sorts of companies from auto manufacturers to window washers are going green these days, and the film industry is no exception. There are numerous ways to reduce your production’s carbon footprint, and you needn’t take an “all or nothing” approach. Any steps you can take, large or small, make a difference.

The Sustainable Style Foundation (SSF) is another great resource for green and sustainable filming. Their mission is to educate, support, and inspire people from all walks of life to make more sustainable lifestyle choices at home, at work, and at play. The SSFtags program enables your organization to communicate your commitment to sustainability to consumers.

SSFtag organizations are able to display the SSFtag logo in their communications. The SSFtag enables consumers to make more sustainable purchasing choices across a variety of lifestyle categories. SSFtags have proudly been displayed by film making companies, among other industries, and is a nationally certified trademark belonging to Sustainable Style Foundation.

The leadership at the Sustainable Style Foundation has recently created a set of specific, easy-to-follow guidelines to qualify for a green film project. Please contact the SSF directly for more information.
