Eradajere Oleita

Detroit Organizer

Eradajere, a Nigerian born woman, has made her name as a community resource by helping people and organizations write grants, run social media, build better community strategies, transition to sustainable practices, and help brand businesses. Her work with the youth involves: creating and selling art work, public speaking support, and starting businesses. She also built several gardens in Detroit public schools with students being the overseers of their progress, and created zen rooms for students to give them an outlet to meditate and express themselves in a safe environment. Along with these programs, Eradajere served with Ecoworks, where she educated students about environmental sustainability, taught students how to test for lead in their schools and homes, placed air monitors in polluted areas. Currently, she is the founder of The Chip Bag Project, a sustainable initiative focused on bridging environmental justice and social justice by turning foil lined products into sleeping bags to give to the homeless. Her work with TCBP has been featured in 29 countries around the world since its start in Dec of 2020.
