OXFORD, England, January 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The tradition of making resolutions in January isn't just the realm of private individuals - businesses and educational institutions also use the sense of renewal in January to plan for the future and to make changes that will have a positive effect in the long run. The team at Hideout House is urging them to give their resolutions an environmental twist this year.

School in particular are advised to start looking at ways they can become more environmentally friendly. Eco-schools are becoming more and more popular because they reflect an important attitude to the environment and one that is capable of influencing family life for the better.

Schools with an important environmental agenda teach children about the environment and pass in good practices from an early age, while also doing their bit to educate parents on greener lifestyles. This gives schools a greater influence over the environmental impact of the communities they serve.

The team at playground equipment company Hideout House recognise that not all schools are built from the ground up on environmentally friendly ideas, but existing schools can certainly reflect on their positions within the community and take measures to deliver a more eco-friendly agenda in the future.

This eco-friendly agenda may take the form of modified school facilities like eco-playgrounds and nature areas, modified school practices or a different take on the curriculum. In January, lots of schools start putting those eco-friendly plans into action so they are ready in time for the spring and summer terms.

Schools that put the environment alongside education is their chief priorities often appeal to modern families who are also trying their best to cut down on waste and limit their own impact on the environment.

Hideout House specialises in supplying eco-friendly outdoor playground equipment and designed eco-educational spaces for nurseries and schools at both primary and secondary level via its website at
