Is it an eco-friendly choice?“Bamboo itself is a fast-growing grass, making it extremely sustainable,” Chris says. “It will reach maturity, and can be harvested, in around five years, compared to 25-plus years for a hardwood tree. The root of the bamboo also self-generates, so there’s no need to replant the crop after harvesting – it will simply continue to grow. “If you want to ensure bamboo flooring is truly eco-friendly,” he adds, “look out for FSC certification. This is a global organisation that awards certification to certain products that are proven to be sustainable and eco-friendly.”The material itself can be sustainably managed,” Wayne agrees. “Bamboo is a very fast-growing grass, so it can be cut and regrown, and there’s a plentiful supply, so from that point of view, the raw material can be a more eco-friendly option than hardwood. “On the other hand,” he says, “it has glues and coatings on it and it’s shipped from China, so that needs to be considered as part of the overall footprint of the product, as with any flooring material.”
