I remember back in the '70s all we heard about was the impending doom of the soon to come ice-age, now they tell us we're getting hotter when we were suppossed to be freezing.

Bamboo is a more "sustainable" wood choice, as it can be regrown much more quickly than, say, a hardwood maple or bubinga tree - so compared to buying a drum made of those, it is environmentally preferable, but buying a used snare is certainly better.
