We should all be model citizens — at least when it comes to eco-friendly fashion. At the new Eco Citizen boutique in Russian Hill, former Santa Fe gallery director-turned- boutique-owner Joslin Arsdale, has filled her simple and sunny shop with earth-conscious, fair-trade fashion. Here you’ll find stylish casual separates by local labels Del Forte Denim, Kelly B, Turk + Taylor and Sara Shepherd. I also loved the cute, organic cotton basics by New York-based Loyale, gold hemp-satin cuffed trousers by Ciel and slip-on Veja sneakers from France with soles made from sustainable wild-harvested rubber. Drop by for the shop’s grand opening party tonight, from 5 to 8 p.m., for organic wine, beer and hors d’ourves and a meet-and-greet with the local designers.1488 Vallejo St., 415-614-0100.
