Eartheasy is a family business run by Greg, Ben, Aran and Lindsay Seaman. Our order fulfillment staff is managed by Angela Amos, who oversees one of the best product delivery teams in the business.
Originally from Long Island, NY, Greg Seaman founded Eartheasy in 2000 out of concern for the environment and a desire to help others live more sustainably. As Editor, Greg combines his upbringing in the cities of New York, Boston and San Francisco with the contrast of 31 years of living ‘off-grid’ to give us a balanced perspective on sustainable living.
Greg spends his free time gardening, working on his home and building a wooden sailboat with hand tools.
In 2010, Lindsay retired from her teaching job and is now able to follow her passion for organic gardening while helping manage the homestead. She works with Greg on our “research” gardens and orchard, where she enjoys experimenting with new ideas in organic food production.
Lindsay is an avid reader and researcher, and is the quiet contributor to many site articles. Lindsay grew up in rural communities in northern California.
Ben graduated with a BSc from the University of Victoria, while concurrently building a successful contracting firm to pay for his university expenses. Over three years, Ben built the firm to almost half a million dollars in sales and 30 seasonal employees. His desire to do more for the environment, inspired by his lifelong love of nature, led him to work with his father on Eartheasy in 2007. Under Ben’s management, the various products sold on Eartheasy were consolidated into a dedicated online store, with an office and warehouse in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
On the weekends, Ben can usually be found gardening, hiking, or fishing.
In 2009, Aran joined Eartheasy to help manage the website’s growth. Aran received his business degree from the University of Victoria, and helped to pay for his education by developing his own web design business. Aran created the Eartheasy blog, and has designed and spearheaded the development of Eartheasy’s new store and site-wide design. He ensures that Eartheasy keeps up with the best practices of modern web-based business.
Aran enjoys learning about emerging technologies, expanding his culinary skills, hiking, bicycling, and training in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
