Bamboo confusion

In the past few days, I've been reading some interesting articles about bamboo fabrics and proper labeling. The more I read, the more my head spins! Here are some interesting links for those that heard about the FTC releases or those that didn't hear and want to find out more:
FTC release
Home Textiles Today post
Fashion Incubator post
EcoFactory post with some interseting comments by bamboo suppliers

I think this is frustrating news for bamboo lovers. I have gone through the pages on my site to ensure that there are no unsubstantiated claims. The pages of the store that feature products from bamboo origins will be updated as soon as I hear from the manufacturers how to correctly describe them.

Something tells me this is just the beginning of a LOT more information and changes to come.
