A sustainable approach to the work that we do is extremely important to Quench Studios. We are passionate about protecting the environment and we believe fully in contributing to a more sustainable world. Nick recently completed the film Gaia which very deliberately plays with sustainable concepts. There are virtually no sustainable options when it comes to purchasing video production gear (obviously critical for our business), but we buy local or buy second hand where possible. We also have implemented the following:
In a deliberate attempt to avoid using traditional toxic wood stain and varnish, household items like turmeric, vinegar and red wine were used to stain the wood. A simple recipe of olive oil and beeswax was used to as a 'varnish' and to bring out the tones in the wood.
Finally the equipment was brought in to complete the renovation. The project was a great success and was created at a fraction of the cost. Price was not the incentive however, reducing land fill is.
Constructing things from pallet wood appears to be on the increase and we think this is a great thing. If our office helps encourage that in some small way, that makes us, and the planet, very happy indeed.
