Bamboo has become the darling of the green movement because it's a plentiful resource. Bamboo's root systems typically aren't damaged by harvesting and it re-grows very quickly. But is it really green? Bamboo is native to Asia and a large percentage of the bamboo used in the US is shipped from that region.
