Industry colleague, foodie-extraordinaire, & all-around good guy Mark Casper passed along this interesting article on bamboo flooring. This well-written article in SLATE entitled Bamboo and You, Are hardwood floors a crime against the Earth? was authored by Brendan I. Koerner.

Coming in the next few days, I’ll highlight some other eco-friendly hardwood options for consideration that are local, affordable, and stunning! Stay tuned!
