Eco Shoots puts down roots at Bristol's Bottle Yard Studios
Eco Shoots Ltd is the latest company to put down roots at The Bottle Yard Studios. The business was founded by two Location Managers from the South West, Monty Till and Poppy Gordon Clark. Eco Shoots specialises in delivering sustainability solutions for the film, television and multimedia industries in the West of England. The Bristol-based company supplies sustainable hire equipment and sale items as well as various eco-friendly services, from compostable catering packaging and recycling assistance to clean power solutions and reusable floor protection.
“We are thrilled to now be able to call The Bottle Yard Studios ‘home’,” says co-founder Monty. “Along with our major investment in a new range of diesel-free generators, establishing our base at The Bottle Yard allows us to assist more productions to work more sustainably across Bristol and the South West. Poppy and I founded Eco Shoots because we share a passion for giving productions of all scales the tools to work ‘greener’. The Bottle Yard team shares this passion, so we have felt instantly at home. We look forward to serving the growing number of film and TV productions filming in the region.”
Eco Shoots has recently invested in a hire stock of diesel-free generators - including 125kWh Silent Towable Generators and 5k VoltStack® Generators - thereby offering emission-free, dependable power for location filming, events and mobile workplaces. Through the usage of these generators, production crews and event producers can offset a minimum of five times the number of road miles they take to transport each year.
In addition to equipment for sale and hire, Eco Shoots also runs an online Cast & Crew store stocked with environmentally-friendly essentials for use on set or in the production office. Now available to all professionals working on site at The Bottle Yard Studios, this service enables individuals and companies to shop ethically with ease, reducing the number of small parcels being delivered to the Studios from large companies that are failing to reach certain climate goals.
“It’s our pleasure to welcome Eco Shoots to The Bottle Yard Studios,” elaborates Laura Aviles, senior film managers at Bristol City Council. “Their presence will bring massive benefits to crews basing here as well as our community of more than 25 businesses on site. Our Green Team, which consists of Bottle Yard and Bristol Film Office staff, is currently rolling out a number of measures under our five-year Environmental Action Plan, ranging from de-carbonising our buildings and systems to assisting clients to work more sustainably at the Studios and on location in the city. Having Eco Shoots on site complements this work, which is more important than ever as we expand the Studios this year.”
