I was shocked and saddened to hear about the death of Anita Roddick. As a young sales rep in the late 1980's, I used to call on her when she was just starting out and operating out of a small unit in a suburban commercial/industrial park in the Toronto area.
She was an inspiring, dynamic woman whose ideas were well ahead of their time. I remember that she was a hard worker, and never failed to miss an appointment.
Her ethics and belief in her product will never be forgotten. The Body Shop grew to represent the best in body care, and with its focus on environmental issues is still a leader in the industry today.
She will be missed.
