Children living in the United Kingdom's Lake District National Park could become the most environmentally-friendly students in the world (without having to do anything) because many will be attending Elleray Preparatory School's Treehouse School.
Designed and built by Robert Gaukroger of Kita Design Company, the Treehouse School comprises a set of green classrooms which stand on stilts nestled in the trees, and is built from recycled materials.
Implications - The health of the environment is becoming an increasing concern with many consumers. Companies that incorporate eco-friendly ideas into their designs (such as recyclable materials) will do far better on the market as this development is becoming more and more desired in a commodity. A business that keeps the environment in mind will appeal to this broad consumer base.
