We Care

The threat posed by climate change and the need to preserve natural resources are some of the most important issues facing us today. At Oyster Box, we are keenly aware of our responsibility to confront these problems head-on, and have instituted a Green Team to investigate and implement the ways we can contribute to this global process.

We are committed to our community and dedicated to social responsibility. Supporting local charities, conservation, preservation, nature, heritage and green initiatives including the personal development of each member of the Red Carnation team, is at the heart of everything we do.

Beach Clean-up

For every bucket of rubbish collected from the beach by hotel residents, we offer a complimentary drink in the bar. Buckets are supplied by the hotel and once returned to reception, they are redeemed for a voucher enabling you to enjoy a beverage as a ‘thank you’ for helping us with our efforts.
