      On the wake of Anita Roddick’s death, I wish to share a personal connection with all of you. As she so adeptly and passionately claimed, we can all make a difference. Though I never met her, nor have the women in Botswana she has touched, she will forever be the reason families have food on their table and hope in their hearts.

      Having developed the production and use of Marula Oil as the amazing moisturizer Southern Africa had aways known as “Miracle Oil”, Body Shop singlehandedly created a vehicle for income for thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of women throughout South Africa, Namibia and Botswana.

      The group I import Marula Oil from supplies pure essential oil to several boutique body/beauty producers here in the United States, as well as to Body Shop. Most recently, they were given a grant from UNDP to expand marketing to the US in order to give extend their reach to including 3,000 women in remote villages in Northeastern Botswana.

      Serving as a model of fair trade sustainable business development and practice Anita Roddick serves as a wonderful role model for us all-her life’s work has left this world a better place for us to live.
