Cotton is inherently a very wasteful crop in terms of water resources. It also takes a lot of chemicals to process the cotton, further complicating things. America probably has the most sustainable cotton currently, though other countries, like Pakistan, are pursuing ambitious strategies to make cotton more sustainable.
It would be more efficient to use a more environmentally friendly crop, like hemp (http://www.hempfarm.org/Papers/Hemp_Facts.html). Hemp uses much less water than cotton, doesn’t need as many chemicals to process, and produces more fiber per acre than cotton.
