The Sustainability in Prisons Project

Sustainability at the Department of Corrections

The Washington State Department of Corrections has earned a national reputation for its efforts to make both its operations and facilities more sustainable. By being innovative and forming unique partnerships we have reduced our impact on the environment, made our operations more efficient and assisted with wildlife restoration.

The Sustainability in Prisons Project is a partnership of the Washington State Department of Corrections and The Evergreen State College. Our mission is to bring science and nature into prisons. We conduct ecological research and conserve biodiversity by forging collaborations with scientists, offenders, prison staff, students and community partners. Equally important, we help reduce the environmental, economic and human costs of prisons by inspiring and informing sustainable practices.
