Toma and Hingen founded Common Ground Green during a deep recession and found success as many customers not only desired but sought out environmentally green building solutions in the Durham, NC area. The store sells and installs only certified sustainable materials that are kind to the planet as well as to its citizens.
“Common Ground Green Building Supply Center is proud to be doing our best to make a difference in the health of your home and the health of the planet by providing ecologically friendly building solutions. Our promise is that every product we sell is certified and sustainable and meets our uncompromising standards of kindness to the planet, the environment, and people,” Toma recently shared at a local business networking event.
Toma and Hingen vet their products based on performance, durability, and sustainability. When asked to elaborate on how products are selected for placement in the store, Toma responded, “If we don’t trust (a product) enough to put it in our own home, you won’t find it in our store. We trust and stand by our products.”
The Grand Re-Opening event at the newly expanded facility will feature several new products. The flooring and tile showroom has been expanded more than 50% and tours will be offered that day. The remodeled cabinetry and kitchen inspiration area features new and unique counter top surfaces and cabinetry that make food preparation safer and create uniquely beautiful spaces that are both durable and green.
In addition, the Center has both kitchen and bathroom design professionals on staff to assist individuals and contractors in selecting flooring, countertops, cabinetry, and window solutions that fit the homeowner’s budget.
The grand re-opening on Saturday, March 19 from 10 a. m. to 6 p.m. includes special event pricing, a drawing for a very special gift basket, and food from local vendors. The event celebrates not only the success of Common Ground but of all customers and connections who are committed to “living green”.
