CARSON, Calif. — Body Glove International has announced that they are among the first group to receive Water Quality Association (WQA) Sustainability Certification under the new WQA Product Sustainability standards for water filter products, according to a press release on Surfwire.

All core-line under sink filter systems and cartridges from Body Glove have been certified, the release reported.

"From the inception of these products and our partnership with 3M our drive was to create an innovative, more responsible product," said Major Avignon, president of Body Glove Water Filters.

The filters met the WQA standards because of multiple factors, including 70 percent recycled product boxes, biodegradable shrink-wrapped labeling and the easy-to-use recycle program  for used cartridges, according to the release.
