The Environmental Benefits of Bamboo Floors

By FAF Staff Writer, (265 words) Posted in Bamboo Flooring on July 8, 2008

If you've ever driven past a clear-cut forest with tiny saplings interspersing the stumps, you've probably given a thought or two to sustainability. No? If you've never thought about where your hardwood floors have come from, now is the time to start. The new environmentalism is all about sustainable resources, and that goes for everything from the food you eat to the home you live in.

Think again of those tiny saplings. How long will it take them to grow to full maturity - twenty years? Thirty? Longer? Sustainability is founded on the idea that resources not only reproduce at the rate they disappear, but that they're ready to use on a shorter timeline than you might be used to. The principal draw of bamboo flooring lies within this exact type of sustainability. Forget waiting decades for a forest to regrow; bamboo is fully mature and ready to use five to seven years after planting. Your oak flooring might look nice, but you can bet that mighty acorn got its start before you were walking. Once harvested, bamboo regrows quickly with minimal interference, and the plant's unique shape means that many bamboo plants can fit into a limited amount of space and still produce an ample harvest.

As well as being an easily renewable resource, bamboo flooring is hard and durable, so you won't have to worry about replacing your bamboo floor within your lifetime. It looks great, too! Bamboo is the most environmentally friendly flooring choice on the market today, and its sustainability guarantees that it will be for years to come.

Very interesting article. I love my bamboo floors in my living room and dining room. They are very light colored and bring a lot of openness and light to the room. They are a great choice in my opinion.

I agree with you Jessica. I love my bamboo floors. I bought carbonized bamboo for its darker color. I was prepared to have bamboo that was a bit softer, but my installer was great and put several layers of protection on it. So far, no problems at all.

Interesting article. I just had an installer come to my house and put in bamboo floors from DuroDesign and I chose the warm chestnut color!It is such a beautiful floor. I knew bamboo was eco-friendly because I've been converting my lifestyle into new green floors, keeping my units at certain temps, reusing cloth bags, in the process of installing solar panels. I never knew how fast bamboo grew. I knew it was fast but wow. Thanks for the info it really helps spread the word on the things we can do to go green with class.

I bought bamboo flooring from Teragren and I am so pleased I can't even begin to tell you. I love bamboo, the way the flooring feels, looks, smells. Bamboo's Eco-Friendly qualities are a major plus in my book. I'm trying to help anyway I can so why not choose bamboo? We also put cork in our nursery. Cork flooring is a great flooring option as well...

We strongly consider the sourcing and carbon footprint aspect of eco-friendly. Bamboo imported from other countries has a more negative impact on the environment than USA wood products sustainably forested.

While there is lots of love for Bamboo out there, I have to consider the aspect of "greenwashing" with the notion that purchasing a Bamboo flooring product from China or Vietnam is better for the environment. There are no FSC certifications of Bamboo, nor are there Fair Trade Certifications.

TreeHugger says "While there are benefits accruing from using a renewable resource, until one can find an FSC or equivalent approval rating, a Fair Trade seal, formaldehyde free, it does not get five hugs from Treehugger.

Right now if we had to chose between bamboo and, say, locally cut FSC certified maple flooring, a strong case could be made that the maple is environmentally a better choice."

Jane H posted on: September 4, 2009

In my opinion, bamboo flooring can be one of the more eco-friendly floors out there. And yes, that means when harvested at the right time and when manufactured without formaldehyde. The FSC stamp had its own faults and unfortunately where there is a buck to made, especially when it comes to green flooring or green products, someone is going to find a way give the perception of green without being green.

Consumers have to do their due diligence when choosing a bamboo floor, hardwood floor or any eco-friendly floor for that matter. But you can probably assume the very inexpensive bamboo flooring sold online is not truly green flooring so buyer beware if you are looking to be conscious about the environment.

Unlike wood, bamboo is a form of grass. As one might expect, then, its structure is also unique!
Bamboo “stalks”, commonly referred to as “culms” are the main growth supports for the
plants leaves.
Bamboo culms grow in sections and these sections are defined by thin areas called nodes.
The parts of the culm between theses nodes are called internodal areas.
Unlike trees, which grow solid, the centers of the internodal parts of the bamboo culms are hollow,
but the nodes are solid. Bamboo’s cell structure is made up of bundles of parallel microscopic fibers.
These bundles of fibers create strength but do not weigh much and are filled with lignin which makes the bamboo flexible.

At first glance it is just another image of a Syrian fighter preparing to fire his weapon. But look beyond the sandbags and rubble and there is a reminder of the grandeur once enjoyed in this Aleppo home devastated by civil war.cheap ugg women boots cheap ugg women bootsAn ornate gold gilt dressing table which would have once taken pride of place in this room now stands among debris, its mirrors cracked, while heavy draped curtains hang precariously off a rail.The fighting is part of a wider battle over a string of towns and villages in the rugged Qalamoun border region in an effort to control a strategic highway and smuggling routes from neighboring Lebanon.
