SAN DIEGO, Dec. 28, 2010—Cook + Schmid, a full-service integrated communications agency based in San Diego, has partnered with San Diego Coastkeeper, the region’s largest professional environmental organization working to protect inland and coastal waters, to provide public relations services. Cook + Schmid will help San Diego Coastkeeper spread the word to San Diego residents about important environmental issues and how to get involved in protecting local waters.   

“San Diego Coastkeeper leads the region in water conservation and protection—something from which we all benefit,” said Jon Schmid, Cook + Schmid managing partner.  “As a local business, we understand the need to educate residents about our water issues, and we’re happy to employ our public relations services to help San Diego Coastkeeper with that mission.”

Cook + Schmid has planned and implemented a number of successful brand image and outreach campaigns.  They have garnered a tremendous amount of coverage for other local non profits, including the Ocean Discovery Institute and the San Diego Bay Parade of Lights.

Through this partnership, Cook + Schmid and San Diego Coastkeeper hope to increase awareness and help the public to better understand San Diego’s water issues and how residents’ daily decisions impact the environment.
