Body Shop Founder Anita Roddick Dead at 64
For years there were not too many products that included the words "against animal testing" on their labels. Since she founded the Body Shop, it has promoted healthy, green products and good green design. John Sauven, executive director of Greenpeace said:
"She was an amazing inspiration to those around her, not just in environmental and human rights issues, which were two of her passions.She was so ahead of her time when it came to issues of how business could be done in different ways, not just profit motivated but taking into account environmental issues.When you look at it today, and how every company claims to be green, she was living this decades ago. She was a true pioneer."
