locavore
 n.— «“Initially it was the taste thing for me,” said Robin McDermott, who lives in Waitsfield, Vt., where locavores call themselves localvores. “But now when I think about what it takes to get lettuce across the country so I can eat it in the middle of winter, between the fuel costs and the contribution all the transportation is making to global warming and climate change, I just can’t do it. It’s not sustainable and I don’t want to contribute to it.”» —“Preserving Fossil Fuels and Nearby Farmland by Eating Locally” by Marian Burros New York Times Apr. 25, 2007.
