Do we have a problem here?
We asked ourselves what hinders hosts to become sustainability champions.
Hosts lack resources, capacities and time.
Sustainability can be harmful to the image, if dealt with too superficial.
Market entry barriers such as wholesalers or procurement associations, price pressure and strict contracts stop sustainable, often small suppliers to shine.
Sustainability has been too often connected to abdication and being unaesthetic. Words that have nothing to do with it.
No, only oportunities
We asked ourselves how hosts can become sustainability champions.

Who are we?
Alexandra developed hospitality concepts before founding TUTAKA in the beginning of 2018 after being frustrated seeing the amount of things that are thrown away every day in a hotel. Studying Interactive Art Direction at HYPER ISLAND, Graphic Design at M.DH and getting a M. Sc. in Strategy & Innovation helped along the way. Her time at The Ritz Carlton, hospitality competence and the Hotelmarketing Gruppe as well. She is mad for unusual ideas, boldness, ecoistic people, typography and Scandinavian design.
Franziska gained various insights into the problems and effects of unsustainable consumption patterns from different industries such as automotive, real estate and fashion. Being a true materialist herself, excited about design, materials and production, she searched for ways to challenge the status quo. She decided that it is time to reach to the roots of sustainability concepts and went back to University to study Ethics, Politics and Economics at LMU in Munich. Here she dedicated her thesis to "Sustainability and Humanitarianism in Tourism" and started the TUTAKA journey.
