Equating “natural” with pesticide-free has to be one of my biggest pet peeves. The term natural doesn’t actually mean anything and doesn’t guarantee that the cotton was grown without pesticides. Products labeled as natural can contain:

• pesticides
• herbicides
• toxic heavy metals
• trace amounts of PCBs
• toxic fluoride
• hidden MSG
• high-temperature cooking byproducts
• synthetic chemical vitamins
• other non-natural substances

If you want fabric that is grown without chemical pesticides, fertilizers, buy certified organic. Please do a better job of getting the facts straight before continuing to misguide and miseducate people about this!
