Seal of Approval

Awesome Image


We are all equally responsible for the preservation of our beautiful coastline and the amazing species that call this home. We know every one of you are doing great things,, but we believe that collectively we can achieve even more. So why not get the Seal of Approval? This is here to recognise the influencers and catalysts within our community who are making positive changes to protect the Yorkshire Coasts coast, countryside, wild and marine life.

There are three parts to the Seal, from Bronze to Gold and you can commit at a level which works for you.

Ready to get recognition for the work you do?


Last year we had an open call for all budding artists to apply to create our Seal of Approval design, and we were touched by the number of entries we received - it was a tough decision to choose just one winning design!

7-year-old Ava has designed the Seal of Approval logo, now featured as the mascot for businesses who apply to join the charter. Ava also got to attend breakfast with the seals at SEALife Scarborough as part of her prize – being treated to a VIP tour, breakfast, and full-day entry to the centre.

Thank you, Ava, for your creativity and helping us bring the charter to life!

What businesses are


We, as an organisation that provides funding to event organisers, have strived to work with those that, as a minimum, have a leave-no-waste policy in place.

To strengthen this further, along with our guidelines for funding, we will be making it a requirement that event organisers can demonstrate that they are able to fulfil a checklist that aligns with the pledges being made by the business community.
