The Sustainability in Prisons Project has received worldwide attention in numerous newspapers, magazines, scientific journals and other media. This page features some of our favorite coverage.

TED (Technology Eduction and Design), a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, featured our Co-Director Dan Pacholke’s talk on the future of prisons. His presentation was made at the TEDx event hosted by Monroe Correctional Complex outside of Seattle, WA, only the second ever TED event in-prison.


SPP has a new western pond turtle program! The program began late in 2013, and inmate technicians have proved to be providers of exemplary turtle care.
