DESCRIPTION

GREEN LENS STUDIOS is a photographic studio, project space, art gallery full of atmosphere and character. Located in North London, we are the first sustainable photographic studio in the UK.

We recognise that as a business we cannot be 100% eco-friendly, however, we can (and do) seek to minimise our impact on the environment, without interfering with the quality of our professional service. Details of actions include:

• In the conversion of a disused 1880s stables into GLS, we used 70% reclaimed material

• The building has been thoroughly insulated and draught-proofed

• Energy & water saving devices are in use

• We recycle 100% of our waste

• We use a renewable energy plan

• Solar panels are due to be installed later this year to take us off the grid

• We promote eco-friendly methods of transport, including cycling to deliver equipment

• Environmental consultants – Ecovate – presented us with an ecocertificate and nominations for their 2010 “eco-micro business of the year” and “green service” awards (see certificate)

• We use organic or fairtrade produce wherever possible

• To offset our carbon footprint we annually participate in a tree planting initiative
