What other causes are you passionate about?
I’m extremely passionate about female empowerment. Look at EcoDrive, we are all women founders. I have been surrounded by strong females figures my entire life, like my mother who has shown me how it is so important for a woman to be independent, to my first boss that I ever worked for who took me under her wing and mentored me. I believe that ultimately, targeting the root cause of some of the challenges women face is crucial.
One aspect is gaining financial independence, which is a key reason for my strong support of female entrepreneurs. Another aspect is raising awareness and knowledge sharing, which I am hoping to achieve through my role as council member for Hong Kong's Women Commission, who focuses on broader initiatives like gender mainstreaming and funding allocations that would support women's development.
Could you recommend some of your favourite anti-plastic products? (products/brands and where to get them)
I always travel with a que bottle. It is made out of food-grade silicone, it is collapsible, stylish, lightweight. It collapses into a small cube that I can throw into any bag I’m carrying.
I also love Rothy’s shoes, you have probably seen me wear them around. They are made from recycled water bottles, and most importantly they are sustainable, and they are stylish, colourful and pretty may I add. I also love my John Masters Organic lavender, rose geranium and ylang-ylang bar soap.
And of course, my co-founder Claire’s "no plastic mm goi" series of totes and water bottles.
