A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: An ecologically ideal place.
From Ecotopia (1975), the title of a novel by Ernest Callenbach. In the book, the word is used to describe the Pacific coast of the US. A blend of eco- + utopia, which itself is the title of Thomas More’s 1516 book. Earliest documented use: 1975.
“The development plan calls for a veritable ecotopia ... The neighborhood would tap wind, solar, and perhaps tidal power.”
John Coté and Rachel Gordon; Deal on Transfer of Treasure Island; San Francisco Chronicle; Aug 18, 2010.
