Burt's Bees, Tom's of Maine, Naked Juice
here I found it and it does mention her selling to clorox. She sold out but continues to buy land.


"In November of last year, Burt's Bees was sold for nearly a billion dollars to Clorox, which stated that it was eager to "grab market share in so-called green products."

"It feels like closure," Roxanne said shortly after the sale. The little company that grew is now completely out of her hands. But 20 percent of the sale price went to Roxanne. "That has put a lot more green energy into what I'm planning to do," she added.

In December, after a year of closed-door negotiations, Roxanne struck a new kind of deal with state officials and local civic leaders. From the Gardner timber company, she purchased 8,900 acres east of Baxter State Park, which she will return to wilderness, and in turn granted the state a two-year option to buy 5,000 acres of her Millinocket-area property plus a working forest easement on another 6,600 acres, guaranteed to be open to motorized recreation and logging. She also agreed to keep open two important snowmobile trails that cross portions of her land, perhaps heralding a thaw in her relations with area sportsmen and residents.

Today, she is working on acquiring still more contiguous parcels on the east side of Baxter State Park. "This feels good," she says. "Yes it does."
