Talk of green prisons, energy efficient jails, and eco-friendly correctional standards continue as natural resources are depleted and incarceration rates increase. Discussion related to the need, value, and what is working for correctional institutions can be found in, “Prisons Going Green” by Michael Pittaro, and is further stimulated by NIC’s “Green Corrections Challenge”. As the correctional industry pathway becomes more focused on green initiatives, wants to open the communication between practitioners.
