Many People assume Natural cotton is environmental friendly cotton or Orgnaic cotton. But Natural cotton is not Organic cotton. 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. The only difference between natural and conventional cotton is in the processing i.e. natural product is not supposed to be treated with formaldehyde or chlorine bleach. 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, and meet stringent requirements for operations prohibiting use of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides; and adhere to organic standards that nurture the soil and animals.
