You may remember my post from a few weeks ago about some green-friendly products being sold at Costco. I received several contacts regarding that post, but the most interesting just came in yesterday. Here is the email:
From: Bruce Baxter
Subject: Golden Arowana Bamboo Flooring
Thank you for mentioning our product that is sold in Costco. Bamboo flooring is the most environmentally friendly product used in flooring. In fact, it is the only readily renewable natural resource used in flooring, except for rocks! We also have rocks: Pebble Tiles.
Costco is the only retailer in the US (that I am aware of) that is offering a true premium bamboo flooring for around $2.00 s/f. The reason they can offer this premium bamboo for this price, is that they purchase very large quantities, do all their own shipping from China, and have a very low markup for profit.
Should you or others wish to learn more about Bamboo, please visit our Golden Arowana website at bambooflooringinstaller.com. On this web site I try to educate Costco Members on bamboo that is beyond the hype so they can make an informed decision with regard to purchasing bamboo. Please feel free to contact should you wish additional information. Thank You again!
