Founded in 2008, EcoSet partners with large companies to minimize the environmental footprint of their advertising productions. The Los Angeles-based company advises waste-prevention practices, oversees the zero-waste set practices, facilitates the reuse and repurposing of discarded production materials, and advocates the use of renewable energy technology.



“We create an environment on set where everyone can make responsible choices and use resources more efficiently as we work hard to redefine the word ‘trash’ in the minds of the film crews we work with,” EcoSet executive director Kris Barberg said.

When you see a Subaru commercial on TV, you can bet it was created under the greenest  possible guidelines. To do so, we often work with a company called EcoSet. It plots out a turnkey, green plan for the shoot and oversees its execution. Essentially, the shoot becomes a “zero-waste” set, which means that 90 percent or more of the production’s discards are kept out of a landfill through recycling, composting or reuse. Founded in 2008, EcoSet partners with large companies to minimize the environmental footprint of their advertising productions. The Los Angeles-based company advises waste-prevention  practices, oversees the zero-waste set practices, facilitates the reuse and repurposing of discarded  production materials, and advocates the use of renewable energy technology. “We create an environment on set where everyone can make responsible choices and use resources more efficiently as we work hard to redefine the word ‘trash’ in the minds of the film crews we work with,” EcoSet executive director Kris Barberg said.
 
EcoSet’s zero-waste systems align with the Subaru zero-landfill manufacturing process and reduce the impact behind the scenes of our advertising productions. In one year of partnering over seven commercial shoots, Subaru and EcoSet kept 4.8 tons of materials from California landfills. That’s nearly the weight of three Foresters!
Here’s the breakdown:
 
 
90.7 percent of our total discards were diverted from landfills; that’s 9,612 pounds of the 10,592 pounds discarded
 
36.4 percent (3,859 pounds) of materials were composted
 
42.4 percent (4,491 pounds) were recycled
 
11.9 percent (1,262 pounds) were repurposed Food for Thought
 
 Up to half of the discards on an average production can be related to food service, including plate waste, disposable products, and beverage containers. A significant component to waste diversion is composting all of the food waste, soiled paper, and plant-based disposable products. These are used in place of petroleum-based plastic and Styrofoam™. Another basic practice having a large impact is the use of water refilling stations and stainless-steel water bottles by crew members rather than single-use plastic bottles. On a shoot without sustainable practices, an average production discards 300 or more plastic bottles each day – many of them still full of water and forgotten by busy crew. In seven Subaru shoots, we avoided the purchase of an estimated 6,000-plus plastic bottles. This dramatically reduced the volume of discards that needed to be managed and also promoted the mindset of reuse. The stainless-steel bottles will continue to be used by production members in their daily lives for years to come. Repurposing for Good
