As a global citizen, ZAGG is changing the way we think, design, produce, and package. We’re forming partnerships that help us maximize our efforts, and we’re creating solutions that benefit consumers and the planet.
Protect and Enhance
At ZAGG, it's always been our mission to protect and enhance, and that includes the world we live in. We're starting our journey towards environmental sustainability by considering environmental improvements to packaging, product materials, recycling, manufacturing, and more.
Create sustainable packaging and use recyclable packaging elements
Reduce use of petroleum-based materials and integrate environmentally-friendly ones
Recycling & Disposal
Provide eco-friendly options for recycling and disposing of used products
Reduce the carbon impact of our manufacturing processes
What We’ve Done So Far
Here’s a look at the action we’re taking in our four core areas of focus: Packaging, Materials,Recycling & Disposal, and Manufacturing.
Did you know that roughly 50% of our plastic waste comes from single-use packaging plastics? At ZAGG, we’ve replaced the plastic in our InvisibleShield packaging with recyclable paper counterparts. And, our phone case packaging is 100% recyclable. As a result, ZAGG has eliminated over 1.7 million lbs. of single-use plastics annually.
FSC Certification: Protecting Healthy, Resilient Forests
ZAGG’s Eco screen protection packaging has been certified by FSC. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is committed to protecting healthy, resilient forests. The FSC label is the world’s most trusted mark for sustainable forestry. FSC certification ensures packaging comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
Sustainable Product Materials
ZAGG searches out sustainable materials for use in our screen protection. For example, we use a plant-based polyester called PLA (polyactic acid) in our Ultra Eco and Fusion screen protection. PLA is derived from renewable bio mass. Plant-based resources grow at a faster rate than they are used. They require less energy to create and have a lower carbon footprint.
ZAGG also uses recycled glass in our Glass VisionGuard Eco screen protector which reduces air pollution, reduces space in landfills, and conserves natural resources.
Certified Green Product from TÜV Rheinland
ZAGG’s Glass VisionGuard Eco and Fusion XTR2 Eco screen protectors have received the Green Product Mark from TÜV Rheinland. That means they’ve been deemed environmentally preferable products because of their positive impact and role in preventing pollution, using resources sustainably, and mitigating climate change.

ZAGG has 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 retailers across the globe, a tree is planted. Our efforts have resulted in over 1.1 million trees planted with Eden Project.
34% of Gear4’s iPhone case line-up utilizes D3O® Bio, the world’s most advanced, plant-based protection material. D3O® Bio is made with 52% renewable resources as opposed to fossil-based resources. Plant-based materials are preferable to petroleum in generating bio plastics because plants grow at a faster rate than they are used.
ZAGG has partnered with Eastman, a global specialty materials company, to offer select phone cases that are more sustainable with Tritan™ Renew which contains 50% certified recycled content. During fiscal year 2021, these efforts helped divert 60 metric tons of plastic waste from the ocean or landfills, the equivalent of over 6 million water bottles, and have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 51 metric tons compared to the processes using fossil-based resources.

Sustainability is a journey. When we started out, we already felt a sense of urgency, like when you start a road trip and think, ‘if only we’d gotten up earlier, we’d be a couple of hours ahead.’
Even though we’ve just begun, we’re focused on the future and finding new solutions that will reduce our carbon impact and increase environmentally-friendly practices for our products, people, supply chains, and in our manufacturing.
