Body Shop Founder Dies

Dame Anita Roddick, 64, founder of The Body Shop, died today after suffering a major brain hemorrhage, her family said in a statement to the UK Press Association.

The Body Shop, a major multi-channel success story, became an international mecca for "green" cosmetics as customers were becoming environmentally aware. She was also an outspoken and indefatigable campaigner for animal rights, human rights, fair trade and Community Trade, and founder of organizations like Children on the Edge.
