    Anita Roddick - I have a photo of you on my vision board with your arms wrapped around kids in what looks like a school in India- you looked so alive, vivacious and passionate! I then picked up your book "Body and Soul" in a second hand bookstore. Anita you have inspired me.. inspired me to be in business, inspired me with your beauty and wildness at the same time.. you dared to be bold, be truthful and yet so grounded. Thank you for allowing me to see that business can be used as a force for good - spiritual business. Lots of love.. Nadhira.

    Anita was an inspiration. She built a bridge between 'green' ideology and business. Essential for this planets future. Anita was years ahead in her thinking and ACTIONS. I travelled to London from Australia in 1990 and had the opportunity to work for the Shop. It was a fun time and the company did actually live up to my expectations. We even had fair trade organic coffee in the staff room... 18 years ago! I extend warm wishes to Anita's family. To her daughters in particular. Peace! - Kym

    Anita Roddick inspired me to become a business owner. She taught me to do it with kindness and strength and to be a concientious supporter of the planet and its people all the while. She is forever one of my greatest heros. I thank her soul for its bravery in teaching the world to stand up and shout out loud the truth of the human soul. She was and will always be a blessing in my life and though I never had the honor of meeting her I love her dearly. Thank you Anita for being beautiful, incredible you.

    Anita stayed with us several times when in the US. Living the the midwest, at one time we had a cornfield right up against our property line. Anita awoke one morning and insisted, absolutely insisted that we all go out and sing the theme song from "Oklahoma" (the musical) to the corn. And, of course, we did...and laughed and laughed.
