It’s officially Earth Day today, but shouldn’t everyday be an earth day? Where your wardrobe is concerned, it’s easy to make that happen at these top eco-friendly San Francisco shops and boutiques:
Eco Citizen: Fair trade, eco-conscious fashions from such designers as EDUN, Loomstate, Linda Loudermilk and Del Forte Denim are on display at this Russian Hill boutique.
EcoLogiQue: Low impact production methods and sustainable materials are behind the clothing and organic products for men, women and children found at this Hayes Valley destination for eco-friendly labels such as Sweetgrass, Naked Cotton and Under the Canopy.
For a rock star’s wife and co-founder of a coveted fashion label, Ali Hewson is surprisingly down-to-earth, both literally and figuratively. She’s quick to illustrate the latest from Edun, the socially-responsible label she and husband Bono launched in 2005, by standing up to show us the folds of her own drapey black sweater as tactile proof of the spring collection’s soft, easy-going attitude.
