In a multi-part project, Globe Opinion columnist Kimberly Atkins Stohr writes about how to be fashionable and equitable while saving the planet from climate change.

The series starts with a personal essay by Kim on how she went from designing women’s wear to halting creating new textiles and swearing off buying any new non-recycled clothing for at least a year after realizing the immense impact the fashion industry has had on climate injustice.

Subsequent pieces detail the impacts fast fashion has on the planet, how innovative designers are offsetting those impacts, what a consumer’s role is in the fast fashion cycle, changing the way fashion educators teach, and tips for consumers.
