Brands like Primark, H&M, and Zara have all made big claims about their products and their environmental credentials, but while many might argue this is a step in the right direction, there are huge problems with this. From employing ‘greenwashing’ tactics (using vague buzzwords to make your products sound more sustainable than they are) to distracting from the real issues within the industry, these lines do more harm…
