One of the wonderful reasons I love this List:  it is not-for profit[to say the 
least.]

I did look and find similar info on-line.  From places with a financial 
interest in selling bamboo.

Hi Do,
Just curious -why do you say don't wear outside shoes & high heels on  
it.  The manufacturers say it is harder than hardwoods -see the quote  
below from Eco -Friendly Flooring Inc.

Why bamboo? It makes sense. By using bamboo, we do not diminish  
hardwood forests that have taken decades to mature, and we help to  
preserve the habitat of our often endangered wildlife. Bamboo  
produces new shoots each year and individual stems are harvested from  
controlled forests every three to five years. If bamboo is not  
harvested after five years it falls over, unable to continue growing.
How durable is it? This very hard and very durable material is an  
average of 13% harder than maple. It is 27% harder than northern red  
oak and expands and contracts 50% less. Most people with pets find it  
harder and longer lasting that most other floor coverings.
