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 The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 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 and social consciousness 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 an EU-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 brand’s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

Each month, a glossy new issue of Madison Magazine arrives in the mailboxes of readers, sharing local stories and events such as a profile of a local band instructor or an upcoming ballet folklórico performance. For nearly 35 years, the award-winning publication has filled pages with articles and photographs showcasing the Madison area’s restaurants, businesses, and cultural life. The arts and entertainment section highlights events such as the Madison World Music Festival, and food and dining articles explore new barbecue spots and share recipes that highlight local and seasonal ingredients. In addition to regularly reserving space for subjects such as health and habitat, the magazine turns out once-a-year creations, such as an annual food lover's issue and a Best of Madison Readers’ Poll that directs readers toward comfortable coffeehouses and talented theater companies.

Brothers Aric and Brad Schmiling cultivated a passion for viticulture while growing up on their parents’ Italian-style winery. After moving to Green Bay, the duo set out to remedy the area’s winery deficit by founding Captain’s Walk Winery, where trained vintner Aric produces small-batch wines in water-bent French-oak barrels. Situated in a restored pre-Civil War building, the facility entices eyes with old-fashioned design features, including plaster crown moulding, an antique tasting bar, and a television from the eighteenth century. During the summer months, an on-site herb garden mimics the flavor and aroma profile of each wine, and a year-round tasting room offers guests an unpretentious glimpse into winemaking with laid-back tastings and a cellar viewing window carved into the wooden floor.

A passion for music isn't the only prerequisite for joining Kenosha Conservatory of Music's staff of teachers; each instructor must also have a minimum of 10 years' experience or at least a bachelor's degree in order to conduct lessons](http://www.kenoshaconservatoryofmusic.com/lessons.htm). During those lessons, students learn proper technique in guitar, bass, drums, piano, keyboards, violin, or voice. Once they've tackled the basics, they can also join one of the school's duets, trios, or ensembles or enroll in Rock Band classes that group musicians together to work on mastering songs and performing them live.

In 1958, Guy Day and Dale Williams founded their mattress store with a focus on high-quality products and excellent customer service. After 10 years, the partners unveiled their line of handcrafted, personalized mattress sets under the name Verlo, a combination of their wives' names—Verna and Lois. After more than 40 years, the company has perfected its craft, manufacturing customized mattresses and selling them directly through their show rooms. The stock ranges from plush pillowtops to firm sets, both capable of supporting healthy sleeping patterns and cutthroat pillow fights for years to come.

After laying a weather-resistant brick patio, Lowney’s Landscaping and Garden Center’s landscapers finish it off with a stone retaining wall sprouting with perennials and leafy shrubs. They manage the whole project, from design to installation, creating an artful appearance that can increase a home's value. In addition to executing everything from pruning bushes and cutting grass to seeding lawns—services they've been providing for more than 15 years—they illuminate their clients' beautiful residential and commercial properties with low-voltage, energy-efficient lighting systems. Even in winter, they strive to keep landscapes in great shape with snowplowing, salting services, and weight-loss programs for snowmen. The garden center is a place for equally passionate gardeners and novice green thumbs to wade through small blueberry plants, evergreens, tropicals, and a wide assortment of gardening materials.
