Anita Roddick - You Will Be Missed

Anita Roddick, the founder of the Body Shop (which I mentioned in my book because I found her so inspiring), passed away Monday night, according to an article in the NY Times.

Anita was known as the "Queen of Green" - "lauded around the world for trailblazing business practices that promoted environmentalism and other causes dear to her heart." Anita_roddick_queen_of_green

The story says she died after "suffering a major brain hemorrhage." She was only 64.

Being green is a popular subject these days - and one more and more women are getting behind (check out The Big Green Purse, and its blog "Diane's Big Green Purse," which I will be talking more about in future posts). Anita leaves a great legacy of action for a better world.

From the article: Greenpeace executive director John Sauven called Roddick an "incredible woman" who would be "sorely missed." "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," Sauven said. "When you look at it today, and how every company claims to be green, she was living this decades ago."

In memory of this outstanding woman, please Think Green. Today, tomorrow, and always.
