New Campaign Promotes "Going Green" Aboard Sea-Going Vessels

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - October 29, 2009) - Crew members and maritime professionals of all types now have new incentives for reducing their vessels' carbon "keelprints," thanks to Maritime Professional Training's (MPT's) new Green For Going Green Campaign. MPT has adopted this new program as part of their efforts to encourage boat and ship crews to introduce "reduce, reuse, recycle" programs aboard their vessel(s). Crews and companies are invited to submit the details of their onboard programs to MPT at Winners will be selected for the most inventive or most improved plan for managing waste and consumption at sea. As a reward, MPT is offering prizes ranging from $100 to $1,000 in training courses for individuals -- and even more for companies that have instituted company-wide programs.

This new campaign will help raise awareness throughout the maritime industry by encouraging individuals and companies to think about how they are contributing -- both positively and negatively -- to the protection of the marine environment, which is one of the goals of the International Maritime Organization.
