You are contributing to the local economy choosing this place to spend your vacation. You do not carry your foodstuffs from outside since this place cater you best food with great accommodation. Every penny that you spend to consume anything directly goes to the local people since the lodge owners and vendors are local people. Further you can contribute more if you give more priority to local made foodstuffs rather than imported. Locally produce could be rice, potato, bread, butter, meat items etc. All the food items which are in good packing are mostly imported. Consuming bread would be better than noodles because noodles come in non-degradable plastic packaging where as locally made bread does not have packaging at all. That helps to keep local environment plastic free and promote local products which boost the local economy ultimately.
