Think Blue Public Education Program Welcomes New Community Partners: United States Postal Service and SDG&E

United States Postal Service and SDG&E have joined the City of San Diego's Think Blue program. These companies support Think Blue and its efforts to inform the public about storm water pollution and what can be done to reduce the amount of pollutants that flow untreated into San Diego storm drains.

"Storm water is the primary cause of ocean water pollution. Our partnership with Think Blue helps spread the word about this little known, but vitally important face," said U.S. Postal Service District Environmental Coordinator Martin Nelson.

U.S. Postal Service contributions are being utilized to fund Think Blue Public Service Announcements. At the free Easter Egg Hunt, U.S. Postal Service will host a `Think Blue/Stamp Coloring Activity." Kids who participate will receive a free USPS coloring book, pencil and a Think Blue beach pail. One of the U.S. Postal Service compressed natural gas powered vehicles will also be on hand for participants to view. This event, hosted by Califormula Broadcasting, takes place on April 22 from 10a.m.-2p.m. at 360 Third Avenue, Memorial Park, downtown Chula Vista.

Contributions from SDG&E and U.S. Postal Service funded the Think Blue beach pails for children. On each beach pail important tips are listed on how kids can "Think Blue" and help prevent storm water pollution.

"SDG&E is proud to partner with Think Blue and US Postal Service to help children understand how they can help the environment so they will have a better, healthier world to live in," said SDG&E Corporate Community Relations Manager Samantha McDonald.
