WELL-INTENDED
Five entrepreneurs take feeling good to a
whole new level

It was time spent in Tibet that inspired entrepreneur Rocío Vázquez
Landeta to return home to Mexico City and upgrade Eat Like a Local,
the culinary tourism business she established in 2015. Her days with
the Tibetan people taught her how to become a compassionate warrior.
"This is when the social component of my company was born," she says,
"and I became the boss I would like to have in this world."
Starting with her local community-an approach Landeta sees
as essential to sustainable enterprise-she has worked to right many
food tourism wrongs. To start, she provides her all-female staff with
health benefits, gym memberships, and flexible work schedules.
She also pays suppliers, like market stall owners, not only for their
products, but also for the time they spend with tourists.

Though her tours may be more expensive than other
options, they provide an opportunity for travelers to make
responsible choices. "People start to understand why it's
worth paying more," she says, "and we end up with money
that can be directly invested to make the community better."
Certified by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council, Eat
Like a Local reduces plastics by supplying reusable spoons
and cups, offsets its carbon footprint via a reforestation
program, and gives food to the homeless. Landeta is also a
social activist, supporting the children of vendors at Mexico
City's La Merced Market to learn English and providing
business mentoring to women. "I don't measure success in
numbers," she says. "It's enough that I have had a meaningful
impact on a single mom who wants a better life for herself
and her daughter."
