Why was that a bad thing? Both concerns sell lies.
they don't test on animals these days, surely?
If I had an incurable disease for 30 years and knew it was going to cause an early death, I'd be sure as hell to do everything in my power to leave as much money as is physically possible to those around me that I love.
Very sad. Too young, just way too young. RIP.
they're famed for it
everything in your power to make sure that your legacy and its connection to the ideas that you championed actually meant something?
not that i know anything about the woman at all
although i was very cross with Body Shop earlier for somehow making me spend a LOT more money in there than i meant to.
No doubt about it. Loreal was a low point where the words 'Sell Out' where printed many a time, but at least she by what she believed, so respect to her for that.
"Anita Roddick guarded Body Shop's ethical values"
= Trading on the bad reputations of other cosmetic companies to flog her own overpriced tubs of dishonesty to women who get their ethical outlook from That's Life magazine.
...Jesus, WHY am I in this thread?
Has it got a section on rude vegetables?
"Turn your armpits into charmpits."
l'oreal testing on animals for cosmetics, if they still do.
however, if she was just ethically perfect for 25% of her life before she sold out, then that's still a hell of a lot more than most people do.
when you get old you're entitled to be a little selfish and think about your own income, because the government certainly won't do it for you.
and why should you work your arse off being a pioneer in society but have no financial compensation for all of your hard work?
so she sold out - that makes her a terribly bad person for wanting to leave the maximum amount of wealth to her family? no. it don't work like that.
until I read the article :/
Man. That's weird.
