Comments:I have been a fan and follower of Bamboosa since they were launched. I own many of their products (socks, shirts, hoodies, bath cloths) and am extremely pleased with the quality of all of them. I regularly buy their bamboo baby products as gifts for friends/relatives who have newborns. It is refreshing to see someone take such a risk to start a new business, especially one that is trying it's best to be eco friendly, create and keep jobs in the U.S., SC, and their community, and just being good stewards. It's very discouraging to have the government try to squelch such needed entrepreneurship. Bamboosa has done a fabulous job of investing in the people of their local community and producing a quality product that leads to sustainability of our planet. The owners are the most honest and upright people I have ever met. They have complied with adhering to your standards (even thought they are outdated and flawed). They would never intentionally try to deceive anyone. Your attack on them seems to be so harsh. Why is it that the government would try so hard to ruin the reputation and livelihood of these company owners and employees? Is it because they are so small and venerable that you know they do not have the resources to fight back, even though they are right? It seems you have targeted small businesses. What about the large multi million dollar companies? Too much for you? Is there pressure from other industries for you to do something and this is your response? I understand and appreciate the need for regulation and control. Without it there would be chaos. However I feel that your complaint against this company is unwarranted and way too harsh. Even the title of the article is way overboard and clearly written to be ugly and show off your power. Take a closer look at, and recognize the facts about this company and what their real intent is. They are trying to make this world a better place, quit being so malicious and instead; work with them.
