. Boohoo recently hit the headlines after the Competition and Markets Authority launched an investigation in its eco-friendly and sustainability claims alongside ASOS and George at Asda. The watchdog is to look into what each company says about their fashion products including clothing, footwear and accessories. The move comes as part of its ongoing investigation into potential greenwashing and follows concerns around the way the firms’ products are being marketed to customers as eco-friendly.
