I know zero about Bamboo, so I wouldn't be able to advise on that...reclaimed and responsibly harvested old growth are both eco-friendly choices. Depending on species and company, the price spectrum is very broad.

You CAN do reclaimed very reasonably. The reclaimed usually has nail holes, (which is the very reason some people buy it) whereas the old growth does not. Although you can achieve a contemporary look with reclaimed flooring, old growth would give you a "cleaner" look. I have hundreds more photos.

stranded bamboo does come in a more tame variety. there is tiger striped and kind of a plain jane version that's still extremely hard.

kind of like this color & style

a lot of what i would look at is just based on what's available for my $$

the reclaimed idea is very eco but it all depends on if it fits your style and what type of wood it is. i personally am not a fan of fir {which a lot of reclaimed i've seen is} floors just because the wood is so soft. maple and hickory are my two favorites but then again those are the two hardest trees in north america
