Greenwashing…greenwashing itself.

Bamboo flooring ain’t green. Bamboo, half the time, is from wherever the Chinese wanna clearcut. Sorry, pandas. Then, it’s transported halfway across the world, then milled, then glued together to make flooring. Then, if you’re putting it in, say, Colorado—where it’s awwfullly dry—it’ll warp and woof after a year or two and you’ll have to trash and replace it all. Sorry!

The only thing less green than bamboo flooring is Bambook linoleum. LOL: greenwashing imitating greenwashing. We can’t even greenwash with integrity.
