Could you try if you get different behaviour with “guix environment
--pure guix”?

This looks like some environment variables are not set properly.  If you
set variables in ~/.bashrc, for example, (instead of ~/.bash_profile)
that could interfere with “guix environment”.

Could you please show the output of “env” after you ran “guix
environment guix”?
