The Washington State DOC and Sustainability in Prisons Project jump started programs on sustainability in 2003 at Cedar Creek Corrections Center. The project was so successful in so many aspects that expansion began to occur and projects were implemented in multiple prisons around the state. What began as a measure to save taxpayer dollars budded into so much more! Inmate rehabilitation, societal integration, and benefits for the environment were all added to the list of benefits in addition to cost savings for Cedar Creek.
