West Marine again seeks ‘green’ product entries

West Marine announced a call for entries for its second annual "Green Product of the Year" contest.

The marine retail giant will continue to search for innovative, green products and will award a grand prize of $10,000 to a designated official winner at the 2011 Miami International Boat Show.

"As part of West Marine's mission to preserve and protect the marine environment, we're excited to continue our 'Green Product of the Year' contest, now in its second year," CEO Geoff Eisenberg said in a statement. "Our desire is to spur invention and development of green boating products, and we hope to see even more entries this year."

The competition is free and open to individuals, manufacturers, distributors and/or inventors of boating products.

West Marine's "Green Product of the Year" in 2010 was Mercury Marine's MercMonitor, featuring the ECO-Screen. MercMonitor allows boaters to adjust to changing demands at sea in order to obtain the best fuel economy for their specific boat. It constantly monitors engine rpm, boat speed, fuel consumption and engine trim to automatically calculate and guide boaters to the optimum fuel economy settings.
