The People’s Choice Award is a part of the larger ECO Ambassador campaign, a collaborative partnership between SDG&E, CBS8, and The San Diego River Park Foundation. The partnership aims to build regional environmental awareness by educating and engaging San Diegans on innovative environmental programs that positively impact the San Diego region.
