I’ve always wondered how ‘green’ bamboo really is….primarily because most of it ships from China and Africa….thousands of miles away, using huge amounts of fuel to transport. Can’t we grow it here in North America? Does anyone know of any “local” sources of bamboo? I do see the ‘criminal’ nature of harvesting wood through clear cuts, but don’t view bamboo as a savior. Using recycled wood products for flooring or even selectively cut hardwoods may be better.
