Welcome to our
World of Colour!

We have saved 842 tonnes of paint to date!
We collect and reuse over 170 tonnes of paint per year.
We work with over 50 volunteers per year


In 2001, environmentalists and social entrepreneurs, Cat and Kate decided to rescue landfill sites in and around Leeds from the tons of unused paint that people throw away after they have painted their homes, shops, offices, dog kennels or warehouses. That marked the birth of Seagulls.

Seagulls is a hub of colour, creativity and people. We are home to a paint store, mosaic workshop, Refills shop, gallery space and most importantly the whole enterprise is under pinned by our successful volunteer program called We grow People.

Our enterprise is built from passion and spins around the 3 P’s

Planet, People, Profit

because there is no Planet B.
