RE: bamboo and the enviro.
It helps to reduce our dependence on wood products, which are not as easily renewable.  Bamboo can be harvested after growing for only 5-7 years where hardwood takes 60.

RE: bamboo and the enviro.
Bamboo grows very fast but we have to remember that there is a lot of glue inside of bamboo flooring.Is glue enviromental? hmmmm I don't think so.
