    4 Easy Ways to Go Green with GreenSlate

    At GreenSlate, we believe what’s good for the environment is also good for business. We strive to work together with our clients to realize our vision: a more sustainable, environmentally conscious film and TV industry.

    Here are a few easy ways you can help us go green, and do your part to preserve the planet in the process:

    • Use our handy mobile app, now available for free download on both iOS and Android devices, to save time and paper by managing startwork and timecards electronically.
      • Crew members input their startwork information on the app only once, after which the information remains on file with GreenSlate for all future productions.
      • Digital timecards are easy to read—and if crew is working on a weekly show, they can just copy and paste their hours each week, with no need to fill out the individual day.
    • Print smart: Use both sides of 100% recycled paper when possible, and only print the pages you need. It’s not necessary to waste paper on the following:
      • The second, third, and fourth pages of the 2018 Form W-4 (instructions and a worksheet to calculate deductions)
      • The third page of the I-9 (an employee guide to valid forms of ID)
    • Ask your paymaster about on-site printing, which lets you print and distribute your own payroll checks. It’s easy, convenient, and also significantly lowers your carbon footprint.
    • Always tape petty cash receipts to scrap paper.
