Positive messaging to celebrate Earth Day! Spend your energy on reuse and repurposing.
Visualise the carbon emission saved through reuse
If you are a production looking to reduce your carbon footprint and waste, we understand that the sustainable reuse and disposal of props, sets and costumes can be a major barrier. That’s why we’ve created AssetFlow and our new CAMA Calculator. Helping crews visualise the carbon emissions created through single use production assets, and the savings achieved through reuse.
Plus, with our amazing network of reuse partners including prop houses, costumiers and social enterprises, we make it easy for you to make a positive impact. You’ll be able to track and understand the carbon emissions impact of your assets. As well as see the comparative advantages of multiple reuse.
And of course reuse reduces your production budget and your bottom line.
The big win win!
See how your assets impact the environment
Here comes the numbers:
At the beginning of 2023, we had 72 productions in store with us. That amounted to 15,437.5 m3 and 67,403 actual number of items.*
By sending these assets back to our warehouse instead of disposing these assets via landfill, where we estimate they would be reused 3 times, we can help the industry avoid:
- 4,192 tonnes of CO2e from avoiding these assets to go to landfill
- 39,024,019 tonnes of CO2e from avoiding buying new assets and using these assets from store instead.
Therefore, the total avoided emissions arising from reusing the total number of asset simply 3 times is:
43,216 tCO2e – This is equivalent to: 9,312 petrol vehicles driven for one year
If productions can visualise their assets’ footprint and track their carbon emissions impact with ease, this will help to drive forward the commitment to reuse.

*Based on the materials and dimensions that the warehouse team record and upload onto our systems, we are able to convert to weight: 16,421 tonnes
