outside the box has a problem with bamboo:

Somewhere in Asia they are laughing their asses off,"Americans will buy anything if you just say it's green and sustainable." Fact is the bamboo is on the other side of the world. Bamboo is green in Asia not here in America. Unfortunately what's happening for every bamboo floor put in a house here in the U.S.A: it is directly responsible for the loss of at least an acre of Native North American Deciduous Forest that includes thousands of plants and animals.
