Comments:When I heard of this action my first thought was "I wonder who's behind this nonsense". I'm a very happy customer that can personally say I am satisfied that the claims made by Bamboosa for the products I use hold true. I can wear the same t-shirt under my riding gear for an entire weekend with no appreciable odor - unlike cotton t-shirts which smell so bad after one afternoon I have to leave them outside the tent at night. I'm not a biologist...so I can't prove their t-shirts have anti-microbial properties, but my nose knows. Bamboosa is the epitome of the American dream: A small company putting South Carolinians to work at a time when South Carolina desperately needs jobs. A company that's producing an excellent product with ardent devotees all across our nation. My suspicion is the FTC is caving in to the powerful cotton lobby which sees bamboo as a source for textiles as a direct threat. I'm willing to bet there's not one dissatisfied *customer* making a complaint. Shame on the FTC for caving in to big lobbyists and coming after a small American business that's putting Americans to work manufacturing a great product. Doesn't the FTC have better things to do?
