Our Team

Helping you live more sustainably, wherever you are.

We’re a small (but mighty!) team, where everyone is an active contributor towards our goal of building a more sustainable world. Everyone — you, me, we — is on their own unique sustainability journey, where we’re constantly learning as we go. For our part, we’re eager to share what we’ve discovered with you, your neighbor, your cat, or anyone who will listen, really. Building a more sustainable world will take all of us learning and consuming more consciously, and anyone is welcome and encouraged to come along. If you want to join our team, get a culture-vibe check, or meet us, you’ve come to the right place.

So what’s the culture like? Really, though.

EarthHero was built from a place of sincerity in reducing wasteful consumption, where everyone’s values directly impact our mission. Today, we amplify our team member’s values through their voices, experience and skills; creating a culture of hyper collaboration and contribution from each member. Honestly, we’re pretty jazzed about each other and sustainability tips get us going.

Breath Breaks

Around noon, we pause from work for a moment of mindfulness, often involving breathing exercises, yoga stretches or meditations. Flexibility never required.

Warehouse Shifts

Each Monday, team members pack orders in our warehouse, learn more about our products, connect with customers, and collaborate with one another — all orchestrated to some great music!

Company Retreats

During this time, the company comes together to discuss our collective company goals for the year to come, and brainstorm ways we can further our mission and increase impact.

JEDI Committee

To lead our Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) initiatives, team members participate in contributing ideas by department, and regularly report on progress monthly.

Meet our team

Ryan Lewis

Founder & CEO

A dad, husband, nature junky and entrepreneur, Ryan recently left behind the more traditional world of business to follow his passion for environmental sustainability. With two decades of ecommerce experience and a desire to help tackle our society’s harmful consumption norms, EarthHero was born. “We want to make sustainable shopping the new norm. I imagine a day when every time you want or need to buy something, it’s sustainably made. It’s a movement that’s already underway. We aim to accelerate it!” When not in the office you’ll find him at CrossFit, or outside biking, hiking, snowboarding, trail running and playing with his family.

Jeff Day

COO

Jeff joined the EarthHero team after a long history working alongside Ryan. From the first conversation around the idea of EarthHero, Jeff knew it wasn’t a matter of IF, but WHEN he would get involved! Jeff officially joined the EarthHero team full time in September of 2018. With over 20 years of experience in eCommerce, Jeff has worked for some very large organizations but feels more at home in a small, scrappy office with a ‘family’ culture like he found at EarthHero. He’ll admit, he’s once experienced eco-confusion when faced with the 7 different trash receptacles outside of a Whole Foods. But, now, Jeff is diving in head first into spreading the sustainability movement.

Damir Kocer

Product Manager & Business Analyst

After cutting his teeth in the Chicago agency world, Damir began searching for a career that better aligned with his passion for sustainability. Less than six months after moving to Colorado, he found just that with the team at EarthHero. Helping to improve EarthHero’s site experience, Damir loves making it as easy as possible for everyone to make more sustainable and ethical choices. When he’s not in the office, you’ll find him out on a long trail or picking up a new hobby.

When Daley saw an opening on the marketing team at EarthHero, she knew it would be the perfect opportunity to use her marketing experience at a company that shares her passion for the environment – so off to Boulder she went!
