Body Shop was founded by Anita Roddick. The first shop opened in 1976 in Brighton upon strict environmental principles which the company still adheres to today. In fact many of its ideas of reusing containers and cutting down on wastage seem, now, to have been well ahead of their time. Today the company has almost 2,000 stores in 50 different countires and serves 75 million customers. Its mission statement is "To dedicate our business to the pursuit of social and environmental change" and should be congratulated for sticking to this throughout its 30 year history.

It also sells cracking beauty products!
