THE INDUSTRY HAS A TRASH PROBLEM.
WE’RE SORTING IT OUT.
Film & television production is transitory, resource intensive, and extremely time-constrained, making it difficult to mitigate the consumption and disposal habits of the cast and crew. Strapped for time, most productions resort to filling dozens of dumpsters of reusable or recyclable material, resulting in unnecessary carbon emissions, and exorbitant sums of money wasted.
Earth Angel’s mission is to integrate a standardized method of environmental accountability throughout the entertainment industry. We believe that entertainment should never be made at the expense of the environment, but instead harnessed for its cultural influence to effect positive social and environmental change in our society.
Not long after graduating from NYU’s Tisch film program, our Founder EOB wandered into a workshop on “The Rise of the Environmental Steward on Set” at prop house/reuse center Film Biz Recycling in Gowanus, Brooklyn. It was all about the genesis of this position and nearly every panelist talked about how it was a miserable, futile role. But EOB thought “there has to be a way.” She landed her first job as a “Green Steward” in the summer of 2011 with Big Beach Films. It was on that set, elbow deep in trash, when a crew member approached her and was astonished that there was a dedicated person on the crew just to oversee sustainability and remarked, “wow, you’re some kind of Earth Angel!” That remark turned into a walkie nick name and two years later turned into a business to build a scalable model and ultimately create impact across the whole industry.
