Women sleeping in cart

Not everyone is lucky enough to have 55″ TV, social security or even roof to sleep under. There are lots of homeless people in the world living in extreme poverty surviving with under 2 dollars a day. That’s why I sometimes feel a bit of an asshole when I travel around with clean clothes and pockets full of money. Probably one of the best ways to help local economy while traveling is to spend money on root level. So stay away from multinational hotel chains, McDonalds, Starbucks (even though you might miss the taste of western coffee) and shit like that and buy local products straight from the locals.
