Our Green Mission Statement

We are a photography and videography company. Our business is in our home which is as green as possible. We do organic gardening for our veggies and herbs and have a compost bin that we use to compost all waste including materials for our business that can go in there. We recycle everything and buy as much in 100 post consumer waste/recycled materials as possible. and we watch our carbon footprint! We try and buy as much used equipment that is feasible. We hosted a client appreciation party at our house so that we could share with our clients green living in the city. Personally we had a green wedding and I have been a hard core environmentalist for over 20 years, including working with Earth First!, Green Peace, and the Ruckus Society. we would be honored to be listed! I’ve even in a tree to save them from being clearcutted! here is a list of the things we do to be green…. We use Digital Cameras instead of Film, so there are no harsh chemicals We use the electronic delivery of images through e-mail and online galleries We dont do printing of pictures- we give our clients DVDs and all mailings are made with recycled materials We encourage clients to only print the photos they want to hang or put in a book We use Rechargeable Batteries in our equipment We buy used equipment whenever possible We reuse shipping boxes and packing material we receive and recycle what we cant We recycle all paper, cardboard, bubble wrap, Styrofoam, plastics, cans and bottles We replaced halogen bulbs with compact florescent alternatives We pass on old equipment to other photographers or trade it in We use a High Efficiency Air Conditioner and use a programmable thermostat to keep the heat down when we aren’t home and at night We clean air filters frequently to keep Furnace & A/C working efficiently We unplug unused power supplies that use energy We replaced an old showerhead with a newer low-flow model We donate our services and give to charities we both do volunteer work we are both into direct action for environmental and social issues (we even organized and participated in a protest in Beijing for a free Tibet during the summer Olympics) We had a green wedding ourselves We have an organic garden and what we do buy is organic and comes locally as much as possible and besides- our last name is Green! lol!!!
