Select Bag Sealers is well known as an expert when it comes to sealing bags, but the company’s latest charity endeavour has turned the tables to see it getting involved with… bagging seals!
When the team at Select Bag Sealers found out Scarborough SEA LIFE centre were appealing for help to fund new seal transportation bags, used when rescuing injured seals, they couldn’t help but step in to lend a hand.
As Leeds-based business’s new branding features its own cartoon ‘Sammy the Select Seal’, they thought they owed it to their aquatic friends to offer some assistance and were happy to donate £600 to fund the cost of the new seal bags.
The bags, which will be branded with the Select Bag Sealers name and logo, have already been of assistance in helping SEA LIFE staff in rescuing seals off the Yorkshire coast.
SEA LIFE Scarborough is home to the only Seal Hospital in Yorkshire, with the centre rescuing over 30 injured seal pups from local coastal waters each year and bringing them to the Seal Hospital to undergo a rehabilitation programme. Once the animal care team are satisfied a seal is able to survive again in the wild, they are released back into a seal colony.
Simon Browning, Select Bag Sealers “As a Yorkshire-based business we’re proud to be able to do our part in helping out such an important local cause. SEA LIFE Scarborough’s important work is definitely worth celebrating and we’re glad to hear that their new seal rescue bags have already helped make a difference.”
Select Bag Sealers has built a track record for supplying household names across the globe with quality, high-performance bag sealing solutions. The business is also keen to become a be part of the solution to current concerns regarding the amount of plastic that makes its way into our oceans every year and is currently working hard to develop recyclable alternatives.
