SHANGHAI, Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- TÜV Rheinland, an international independent third-party testing, inspection, and certification organization, today issued a Green Product Mark to ZAGG InvisibleShield for its Glass VisionGuard Eco screen protector. As a global leader and innovator for screen protection technology, ZAGG InvisibleShield was named a Green Product Mark recipient after a careful analysis of the company's commitment to sustainable product manufacturing and packaging. More specifically, TÜV Rheinland evaluated ZAGG InvisibleShield in five key areas before awarding the Green Product Mark, including: corporate social responsibility; toxic and hazardous materials control; carbon footprint calculation; recycled material verification; and product recycle and reuse.
Glass VisionGuard Eco consists of up to 30% recycled glass*. Product packaging contains no single-use plastics and is 100% recyclable—including plant-based inks—and features a calculated CO2 emission level of up to 0.31kg over 100 years*. ZAGG has also partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, a nonprofit dedicated to employing and empowering communities through global reforestation. For every purchase of an ECO screen protector on ZAGG.com and at retailers across the globe, a tree is planted. To date, ZAGG's efforts have resulted in more than 740,000 trees being planted with Eden Projects and provided 8,000 days of employment in local communities.
Frank Holzmann, Global Vice President of TÜV Rheinland Business Field Electrical said, "We are very pleased to issue our Green Product Mark to ZAGG InvisibleShield for Glass VisionGuard Eco. Through meeting numerous environmental and sustainability requirements, this product has established a new standard for the company's own development. The Green Product Mark program aims to support the industry to improve their supply chain sustainability management by setting higher criteria. The carbon footprint calculation will also create transparency and support our clients to achieve carbon neutral."
