Film Biz Recycling (FBR) is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to recycle, redistribute and re-purpose the vast amount of material run-off from New York City's film, tv, commercial and theater productions.

The entertainment industry is motivated to operate in a more environmentally responsible manner, but, until FBR started, little to no infrastructure existed. FBR is meeting this need by taking in set and production materials, props, wardrobe and all the other mass that would otherwise be land-filled. FBR assesses all donated materials determining how best to further their sustainability. Practices include renting and selling back to the film industry and public and donating to a variety of charities including a local women?s shelter.

FBR?s newest endevor is a social eterprise known as the Prop Shop. Based in Gowanus, Brooklyn, the 11,000 sq ft space serves not only as a shop open to the industry and public, but a green workspace/think tank/gallery/community hub.
