With her eco-wellness media platform Green Queen, Sonalie Figueiras is bringing sustainability to the masses. One of the first online media outlets in Hong Kong to provide Asia-focused environmental and wellness content, Green Queen attracts 160,000 visits a month from an audience Sonalie describes as made up of eco- and health-conscious professionals.
The eco-entrepreneur came up with the concept a decade ago when she was dealing with two chronic health issues, Hashimoto’s disease and endometriosis. “There is no cure, but I could manage them with a healthy diet and lifestyle,” says the Generation T 2019 honouree.
