Nothing grows faster than bamboo! It holds the Guinness World Record as the fastest growing plant. You can literally watch it grow, and up to 3 feet per day, reaching heights up to 98 feet, all without the aid of fertilizers or pesticides. In contrast, non-organically grown cotton accounts for 24% of global pesticide sales and 11% of global fertilizer sales. Eco-conscious people will appreciate that bamboo stalks are cut at harvest, not pulled out by the root, allowing stalks to re-grow from the existing root. This makes bamboo an excellent tool for soil conservation. Commercial cotton grown everywhere except Brazil and Peru is replanted after each year. Bamboo plays a critical role in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide, by releasing 35% more oxygen and taking in 5 times the volume of greenhouse gasses as an equivalent stand of trees. Furthermore, bamboo requires 1/3 the amount of water that cotton does.
