Are eco-jails a growing trend?
I have never seen the inside of a jail and while I do not plan to, if I had to spend any time in a correctional facility, I would like it to be LEED certified. I came across an article on the NY Times Green Inc. Blog that discusses a growing trend in correctional facilities – eco-jails.
“A new $176 million juvenile detention facility in Alameda County — home to Berkeley and Oakland — recently became the country’s first jail to receive LEED gold certification.” Source: Green Inc.
