My home must be formaldehyde free for health reasons. What drywall is formaldehyde free?

Asked by sarah

I live in the Kansas City, MO area. My home is insulated by soy spray foam. The home is air tight!! Also zone air and heat. I'm trying to avoid Voc's and any harmful off gassing building products. I'm also concerned I avoid any drywall which off gasses sulfur. If you have any questions please ask. Thanks.

Also, what product can replace green board?
