What are some great non-toxic thinset mortar products for laying porcelain floor tile?

We purchased Greenguard certified porcelain 6”x24” floor tiles for our new house, and I’m wondering what the best green products are to lay the tiles? There don’t seem to be many non-toxic options.
Thank you!!

User 7039941,
First of all, can you tell us your name? (I'm Martin.)

Second: It's important to use the word "toxic" accurately. Any mortar products sold for laying tile can be trusted -- in other words, they won't poison your family.

According to one source, ordinary thinset mortar is VOC-free.

What materials are you worried about?
