Green Prison Reform - January 21, 2011

January 22, 2011

It started as a project to have inmates at Cedar Creek prison (Littlerock, Washington) grow moss, but now the Sustainable Prisons Project has expanded to four Washington state prisons – teaching inmates about sustainability, and helping prisons implement sustainable practices that save money. In this follow-up to a story we first brought you in 2010, Producer Lesley McClurg goes inside the women’s prison in Purdy, where the program is helping local inmates turn their lives around behind bars.
