Green Flooring Options: Bamboo
Bamboo is fast emerging as a suitable flooring material. Bamboo flooring has an appeal of its own. The eye-catching pattern that is formed by the slightly darker bands at the nodes of the bamboo makes bamboo flooring all the more special.
A rapidly renewing resource that matures in three years. There currently is no bamboo certified as meeting various environmental production or preservation standards, so it is important to try to learn as much as you can about the bamboo you are interested in before purchasing it. Most bamboo is grown in Asia and the impact of transporting it to the United States market should be considered.
Green Benefits of Bamboo:
• Rapidly renewing
• Quickly matures
• Regenerates without replanting
• Requires minimal fertilization or pesticides
