Here’s an eco question! Should we ban bamboo?

Bamboo

via guardian.co.uk

It seems that bamboo as a textile (also known as viscose) is under fire from the US and Canada – and is being re-labelled ‘rayon’ as when examined microscopically, bamboo and viscose fibres are identical.. plus the viscose manufacturing process is highly polluting!

So the wonder fibre is under attack….but is this fair? Let us know what you think….do you use bamboo fibre in your products? Do you check the manufacturer’s eco credentials before you buy it?
