One of the many products that makers claim to be environmental but is fundamentally flawed.
Bamboo textiles (i.e. clothes, towels etc). Sure they are nice and soft. But in terms of environmental performance, they are a form of rayon (which means chemically laden). Bamboo socks may be no worse than any other synthetic socks you buy, but they are also no better. “Bamboozled” on Grist
Using bamboo as a wood substitute is a completely different story
and may be a good choice.
