They're all over the city: bright green clothing donation bins for Gaia-Movement Living Earth Green World Action Inc., an environmental charity. But, as the Tribune reports today, Gaia is giving little of the proceeds of all those clothes to the environmental causes it claims to support. Gaia is part of a shadowy Dutch-based organization called Tvind, whose leader was arrested in 2002 on fraud charges.
