Thumbs up The Sustainable Prisons Project

I am sharing this link as I think sometimes an idea/concept comes along, that is so positive it deserves mention.

A forward thinking project that will have a positive impact on the future of both the prison and the prisoners involved in such an endeavour.

Sustainable Prisons Project

Our mission is to bring science and nature into prisons. We conduct ecological research and conserve biodiversity by forging collaborations with scientists, inmates, 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.

This is great Rachel and the timing couldn't have been better as I can add it to my resource list as I am currently completing a final paper in my Environmental Studies class.
