Dedicated to conserving the globe's forests, Mr. Bamboo, Inc.'s technicians crown surfaces with durable, lustrous flooring and accessories forged from strand-woven bamboo—which can regrow on its own and sprouts faster than other trees traditionally cut down for hardwood flooring. Professional staffers arrive at homes and offices to install BamStrand flooring with glue or nails, or the BamLoc variety, which they snugly snap into place. Both styles—which are naturally harder than conventional red-oak and maple flooring—are safe for pets and come prefinished with six coats of German ceramic finish.
To further support its environmentally conscious philosophies, Mr. Bamboo, Inc. harvests only the moso bamboo species, which is too large for pandas to eat or whittle into snow globes for their gift shops. The company also frequently collaborates with the U.S. Green Building Council and local contractors building sustainable homes.
