Many assume that Natural Cotton is Organic Cotton. Natural Cotton is not Organic Cotton or totally Eco-friendly. When you see Cotton Products labelled as “NATURAL”, you are getting Conventional Cotton grown with large inputs of Chemicals, Pesticides, and Herbicides to control weed growth.

There are no inspection guidelines to ensure processing of Green/Natural cotton is Chemical Free. By contrast Organic Cotton comes with certification and by being grown on land that is Chemical Free for at least three years.
