CaraGreen now represents TorZo Sustainable Surfaces in DC and Maryland. The additional territory comes as a result of CaraGreen’s success with the product in NC, SC, GA, TN, VA, and FL. CaraGreen has secured specifications in projects ranging from corporate offices to restaurants. Sales Manager, Lisa Feldman commented “We are more enthusiastic than ever about TorZo’s products. They have a stellar sustainability profile, interesting aesthetic, and the company continually innovates.” TorZo sheet goods are manufactured from agricultural by-products, such as sorghum straw and wheat, as well as recycled wood. Their proprietary acrylic infusion process transforms these sheets into hard and very durable surface material suitable for horizontal or vertical applications in both commercial and residential environments. TorZo will take part in the Design Expo at the AIA National Convention in Washington DC next month. Stop by their booth, #1808, and see their materials firsthand.
