H&M may have been destroying and discarding unworn clothing, but at least they made some stuff with environmentally friendly, certified-organic cotton ... right? Wrong.

Authorities in India say the fraud is occurring on a "gigantic scale," and blame organic-certification agencies. However some blame falls with the brands who buy the cotton; consumer-affairs authorities say they should be more vigilant about monitoring overseas supply chains. [Ecouterre]
