To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend human rights" and "Protect our planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, “She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.”
Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to a UK-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the Blue Corn 3-in-1 deep-cleansing scrub mask often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, and other national publications.

In order to earn the loyalty of its customers, American Lube Express dedicates itself to providing quick, thorough service as well as carefully orchestrated trust falls off the front porch.

At The Oil Exchange, auto owners stay in the driver's seat, sipping complimentary soda or water as technicians fill the engine with synthetic-blend oil.

Anthony D. Chavira opened ATX Imperial Auto Glass to correct the shortcomings he saw in other auto-glass businesses. Prioritizing customer relationships over sales, Anthony has managed to spread his brand of service across eight shops where technicians endure rigorous training to earn certifications from Delta Kits, the National Glass Association, and the National Windshield Repair Association. After they’ve mended glass wounds such as rock chips and cracks or replaced entire panes, the crew caps off each service by vacuuming interiors, washing windows, and burning busted glass on a pyre.
