Boots smacked for misleading use of Organic (well, reprimanded)
At last people are taking action in the UK about the mis-use of the word organic on non-food products.

This is green wash and i hates it. Follow this link to see the article in full.
Basically Boots have been told to stop marketing a product called “Little Me Organics Oh So Gentle Hair and Body Wash”. it has an organic ingredients content of less than 5% – no way is this an organic product (ours are 96-99.8% organic). Boots were reprimanded by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for running an online ad for its Little Me Organics Oh So Gentle Hair and Body Wash, after a ruling that it misled consumers into thinking the product was organic.
