From Our Editors

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.

Seattle Shopping Guide

Seattle may not be the first city that comes to mind for shopping meccas. However, there are some special characteristics that give shopping in the city its own flavor. Seattle shops are largely independently run businesses. In fact, it can be hard to find outlets of bigger chains in many of the city’s neighborhoods. Many Seattleites are quite pleased with this feature of their shopping options because it helps locally owned businesses thrive in the city. From clothing boutiques in Queen Anne, to record shops in Ballard, there are many small, owner-operated businesses throughout Seattle.

Seattle is not completely devoid of the recognizable names that people trust for retail purchases, though. Shopping malls in the city include the downtown Westlake Center, the Northgate Mall in Shoreline, University Village in the U-District, Westfield Southcenter in Renton, and Costco in SODO. These malls all contain recognizable retailers and some have diversions other than shopping, such as quality restaurants and movie theatres. For an original Seattle mall, the Georgetown Trailer Park mall in Georgetown is worth a visit. It’s comprised of independently-owned shops operating out of trailers.

When it comes to Seattle shopping, there really are a wide variety of options to meet consumers varying tastes. Being an active city, Seattle has a legion of outdoor sports stores. The city is home to the headquarters of outdoor sporting goods giant REI and the company has a giant retail outlet in Belltown that includes a climbing wall. A few other growing names in the outdoor sporting goods industry call Seattle home as well, such as evo, producers of ski, snowboard, wakeboard, and skate equipment and clothing. Whether Seattleites are out for fashion, outdoor sports gear, or basic needs, retailers in the city have them covered.
