Instead of using paracord a lot of cordage used while setting up camp can be done with either bank line or twine.
Good quality bankline will be strong enough for most tasks and the tar coating will keep most knots from slipping.
Natural fibre twine such as jute or sisal are biodegradable and also can be used as fire starter
