Why It's Green: Bamboo

Bamboo -- it's everywhere.

If it exists (take computer mouses and utensils for example) it can be made using bamboo. But, how green does that make it? Well, when it comes to computer mouses, we're not sure ... but when we're talking about floors and countertops, that's a different story.

Here are a few of our favorite bamboo things:

But, are they green?

Well, someone else has done a pretty good job answering that question, so we're recommending some light reading on the subject: Core 77 has a nice explanation of bamboo's shortcomings (maybe it's not as green as you think it is), as well as it's wonderful qualities (but it's still pretty green)

What are your thoughts on bamboo?
