The Sustainable Capitalist is a person who considers the environment and welfare of the people; while doing business.

The term ‘Sustainable Capitalist’ is not just a fancy word; It is an action word.

The Beginning

People ask me why I’m so obsessed about the Environment and sustainability. I will tell you.

The Sustainable Capitalist

I lost my childhood best friend and her family to carbon monoxide poisoning generated by pollutant generators. Secondly, my dad lost his company to epileptic and high electricity tariff. I spent fifteen years of my life packing out flood from our house; with no option of moving out to a better one. My father ran into debt trying to mitigate and adapt to this challenge as the floods came back worse than before.”

Some people say that I am very intense for a woman. I can’t really remember what made me this tough; but I knew I passed through some much pain as a kid. That made me devise a means of forgetting things that hurt me.

Growing up I felt like my mum hated me. I felt she made me feel that way because as the first born,i robbed her of what she could be. She wanted to be a chartered secretary, but my dad made her quit her career to take care of me. Safe to say, I robbed my mum of what she could have been. Maybe this is the reason I made up my mind never to settle for less.

REES AFRICA

I’m not just creating awareness, as a Sustainable Capitalist, I’m also taking actions. I am the founder of Renewable Energy and Environmental Sustainability Initiative for Africa (REES Africa). A non-profit initiative, which advocates for environmental sustainability basically I am aggressively following my passion.
Growing up I felt gaining knowledge would be the best way to birthing solutions; so I applied to several schools and scholarships.

I got lots of successful applications but not so much of scholarships. In July 2017, it seemed as if fortune had aligned in my direction. I found myself planning for my Masters in Energy and Environmental Management in the university of Twente; but I was wrong. All plans fell through at the last minute. It was like being dropped off a cliff and only a ladder of money could get me back up.


I was so determined to achieve the bottom line with whatever it takes. I’m serious, i even wanted to sell my kidney. I was tired of doing nothing about the environmental issues berating us. In that moment, I realized that I did not need a Masters or need to acquire baseline knowledge to start. All i needed was to start from where I was with what I had. Without exposure, we have been able to make tangible impact with our projects cutting across different target audiences.

Projects


I quit my job in February 2018. Through this work, I now organize over 200 volunteers across six states creating renewable energy access and promoting environmental sustainability for REES AFRICA. In the last 16 months, I have led 22 projects in Nigeria; and mentored youths into providing for profit entrepreneurial solutions to environmental challenges.

The Sustainable Capitalist

My most memorable project must be lighting up a remote village in Oyo state called Lagelu. I saw so many households joyous after giving them electricity for the very first time. The joy these people expressed made my head spin and I wept for joy because it wasn’t just Electricity, it was good environment, good education, good health, more time to work and spend with family, more security and so many multiplied effects.

Challenges

My biggest challenge is that we have suffered a lot as a nation from disbelief, inaction and funding. Inaction is the greatest challenge as we need people to take climate action for a better planet but it’s either the feedback is ‘oh the world is about to end or it’s what the Russians made up’

The Sustainable Capitalist

We need to do things differently. Our population in Nigeria has youths occupying a larger percentage, this breed hope. Through our numbers we can actively make change. Be the change and teach others through our lifestyle how to live sustainably.’


I look forward to a more environmentally sustainable conscious community.”
