Castaic Studios is a studio that believes in supporting initiatives that contribute to the development of a sustainable future. People around the world are embracing a “going green” outlook, and Castaic Studios is happy to support those ideals through a variety of measures.
One of the most direct ways we can be an eco-friendly studio is with our use of electricity. Lighting is the largest consumer of our studio’s power. Castaic Studios is updating all lighting systems to use CFL lights, which produce more light with less electricity, and last longer than conventional bulbs. This helps reduce the studio’s energy consumption.
The studio is also implementing a recycling program. All stages will be equipped with multiple receptacles, labeled for trash, cans and bottles. Placing items in the proper receptacle will allow them to be recycled. This is a great way for everyone to take part in the initiative to reduce waste.
Other initiatives are on the table. Whenever possible, eco-friendly materials will be used in set designs and building remodeling. The studio also has plans to install both solar panels and wind turbines, which will not only reduce Castaic Studios’ energy needs, but may actually feed surplus electricity back into the power grid.
