To ensure healthy and high-quality food for the film crew, while minimizing waste production.


1. Water consumption

Avoid plastic bottles at all cost and choose one of the following combinations:
- Use tap water if available,
- Use water coolers,
- Use reusable containers (flasks, glasses, cups),
- Use compostable cups; their prices are similar to the plastic version.

2. Meal service

  • Ask the canteen service not to use individual paper or plastic lunchboxes; instead order a self-service arrangement.
  • Choose reusable and/or compostable crockery and cutlery; specify this in the contract with the canteen service.

3. Sustainable canteen

  • Choose a canteen that has initiated a sustainable procedure, requesting as a minimum fresh, local and seasonal produce, which is often tastier and cheaper.
  • Make use of organic food trucks and think about vegetarian meals.

4. Produce

  • Buy fresh, local and seasonal produce (fruit, vegetables, confectionery, cakes, etc.).
  • Preferably choose organic and/or fairtrade produce (coffee, tea, fruit and vegetables, biscuits, etc.).
  • Avoid “bad sugars”: offer natural drinks to replace fizzy drinks and dried fruit (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, apricots, figs, etc.) to keep the crew’s energy levels up in a healthy manner (preferably organic).

Things to remember
In order to remove water bottles and plastic glasses from film locations, film commission is distributing flasks
