I was at the Topanga Plaza Mall the other day when I remembered I was all out of hand cream. Just then, I looked up and was right in front of The Body Shop. I was lured in by their sale sign when I remembered the founder of The Body Shop, Anita Roddick was a huge environmentalist and hemp supporter. I also deeply appreciate that she financed Jack Herer’s movie, Jack Herer: The Emperor of Hemp.
As I looked around, a sales rep offered to help me when I asked if she had any hemp products. She was thrilled to show me their pretty extensive line of products and was even more thrilled to show me a beautiful green tin with a large hemp leaf logo on the cover. It was an awesome gift set that included a full size body butter, hand cream and foot cream. Check it out:
The Hemp Gift Set
Hemp Body Butter
Hemp Hand Protector
This set retails for $50 but when I stopped in, I managed to find it 50% off! The tin is pretty awesome and serves as great storage for, well, you know….
I have to admit, I have not been a loyal customer to The Body Shop but after reading more about Anita Roddick and The Body Shop’s Values and Campaigns, the fact that I truly love these products and that I can identify with Anita as an entrepreneur, I am making it a point from this point forward to support The Body Shop.
If you have not had a chance to see Jack Herer’s movie, you’re missing out. I often have it on in the background just to listen to his voice when I miss him. Thank you Anita Roddick for making this possible.
