When vacationing in different destinations, you can contribute to the local economy by buying handicrafts and souvenirs from the local communities where you travel. You can choose quality, handmade items and directly benefit local small businesses and stores.
By purchasing items from local stores you offer the opportunity to provide employment to the people who live there, increasing local incomes and helping to support the livelihoods of families while supporting entrepreneurship, fostering economic growth in the areas.
It also helps cultural preservation, as it sustains heritage and keeps alive the cultural diversity passed down for generations. You do all this and enable sustainable development by reducing the dependence of local businesses on external factors that disrupt their economy.
