What is so bad about items on the Living Building Challenge Red List?

One of the most challenging requirements of the Living Building Challenge is the Red List.  The Red List is a list of commonly used construction materials that cannot be used in Living Building Challenge projects due to health/toxicity concerns.

I am often asked about specific items on the Red List and what the specific concerns about them are. This compiled list by the International Living Future Institute helps to explain why they feel these materials should be phased out of production.
