Sorry, couldn't resist. As others said most crunchies can be found in Chapel Hill. But I've found a difference between east coast and west coast crunchy. It's just different.... maybe it's that humidity factor I was joking about.

thanks for the heads up
i have lived in west palm before. it cannot be that bad, right?

Condition? Ouch. Crunchy folks care.


OP...you should definitely check out the Festival for the Eno this summer. Lots of crunch there!

Drive around the center of Carrboro and I think you'll reach a different conclusion, at least for that slice of the "crunchy" population.

Being crunchy usually means that the person is someone who doesn’t just go with mainstream ideas and philosophies simply because everyone else does. Now that is not to say that someone who is crunchy doesn’t do mainstream things, sometimes mainstream works. However, it means that (usually) crunchy people are notorious for researching their hearts out. We spend hours reading books, talking with others, and scouring the Internet. Basically we don’t want to do something because everyone else is, we want to research all the options and then make the best decision.

To get to the long and short of it, Crunchy people have adjusted the way they live to be more natural. The term “granola”, “hippie”, and “green” are sometimes used to describe crunchy people also. There’s a bit of an overlap and for the most part, I think it just depends on what people prefer to be labeled.

People who fall under the Crunchy label might practice: (notice the “might”, crunchy is not an all or nothing label)
