Default New snare saves the planet?

I'm a litttle confused about this whole "save the planet" thing. How is buying a bamboo snare drum being environmentally conscious? I mean, wouldn't it be better for the environment if that drum had never been made?

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.
I'm so confused...I think I'll go drum shopping.

Gimmick. Most drums are made from plantation woods.

Introducing the new GREENWASHING Snare...
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.
