Sustainable Prisons Project

In 2003, Evergreen State College and Washington state’s Department of Corrections began teaming scientists with inmates.

But the environment is not the only beneficiary; education, environmental awareness and sustainability practices are changing the culture and economy of the state’s corrections system.
