Goodbye Anita Roddick

It's very sad to know that Dame Anita Roddick died last night but when you look back on her life she made some great steps for the green movement.

Anita Roddick died at St. Richard's Hospital in Chichester, West Sussex at 18:30 on Monday 10th September. The 64 year old green campaigner & entrepreneur died of a brain haemorrhage.

Although Anita Roddick may have eventually sold The Body Shop to cosmetics giant L'Oreal  she was a great entrepreneur and an avid campaigner. Don't forget that her Body Shop was the first high street chain to say "No to Animal Testing", she started the charity Children On The Edge and received numerous awards for her business, one that brought awareness of green issues into the public domain long before it became fashionable.
