The green building is not luxury, it will be suitable for middle level or low income families.
Green building is eco-friendly, recycling method and if we go for green building we can avoid wastages.

A professor of architecture once defined life for me as, “a sexually transmitted disease”. Our single primary function as lifeforms is to procreate. While we can make sensible decisions as individuals to limit the size of our families, we all have the inalienable and fundamental right to reproduce. (The fact that you may believe that some people should be denied that right is beside the point. Where does the limitation of this right start and where does it stop. How would you react if the ability to raise your own children was taken from you, as has been from many.)
Instead let us learn to sacrifice the dream of larger homes and larger plots of lands in return we can retain the ability to raise our own children, to form more complex and connected communities and in the process we have the opportunity to express our creativity.

The problem is millions of other people want the same thing, and by the time they’ve finished building, the woods are gone, replaced by sprawling suburbs around the nation and around the World. Obviously, human society should agree with itself to peacefully reduce its population through family planning, but this is a forbidden subject, and almost no one is willing to talk about it. “A Growing Economy Is A Healthy Economy!” So, obviously, a growing population seems to be necessary, even though it is polluting and killing the planetary biosphere we all depend on to live. How many people can the Earth support?
