replacements for plastic:
This hardy grass is the fastest growing plant in the world and grows 1-to-4 inches in a day and regrows quickly after being cut down, making it the No. 1 renewable resource. Since the plant's health is improved by cutting, bamboo can be re-harvested every three years without any harmful effects on the environment.
Bamboo is a very sustainable crop. It is fast-growing, requires no fertilizer and self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn't need to be replanted.
When compared to cotton cultivation, which requires large amounts of water, pesticides and labor, the advantages are pretty clear.

Stainless steel is non-reactive, so bottles and other products do not have to be lined. It is one of the most environmentally efficient raw materials available because of its durability and ability to be recycled. There is a significant carbon footprint attached to manufacturing it, but once made, it should last an extremely long time under normal usage. Even once their service life is over or they become irreparably damaged, stainless steel items should never enter the waste stream. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable and can be reused to make new products without any loss of the original properties.
