Are there any sustainable prisons?

    The world’s first eco-friendly prison was built in Norway in 2008.  It housed about 150 inmates, used solar power and wood heating, and required inmates to manage farm animals and a poultry farm while serving their sentences.  

    More recently, a much larger eco-prison was erected in Hong Kong in 2010.  The concept for the prison promotes open spaces, environmentally and economically efficient use of energy, solar power, and a number of other features aimed at making the prison environmentally sustainable.  However, the Chinese government came under criticism when the prison was constructed, as many people believe the government should devote resources toward creating similar conditions for the rest of its citizens.
