What A Waste

What A Waste

What's in your garbage pail? (2 min.)


See comments below.


Some people are funny. Some are insightful. Some are cynical. Some find a humorous touch in everything. Others find irony. Some write beautifully. Few people do them all as well as Rabbi Yaakov Salomon does. Entertaining, inspiring, astute, he has the uncommon ability to look something to give us pause and make us think. His new book, Something to Think About , gives us just that -- with a healthy dose of wit and charm. Click here to order.

Let us think about millions of brothers around the world just dreaming of a peace of bread.

Waste not

I agree with Daniela, the amount of waste in the frum community is deplorable. Even as an ardent environmentalist, I find myself regretfully succumbing to paper during Pesach. Tikkun Olam - we should make a better effort to bring awareness of waste to our communities.

And yasher koach to that restaurant! I've been to so many "all you can eat" places where the wasted food makes me want to cry. Good for them!

waste and me

I, like a Joey, do not throw anything out. It makes very hard to see good stuff and clean up. After listening to you I realise that I should leave only things that are still good, but what is it? Very interesting question for me to think about

Hilarious, but sad

Americans are becoming like slouchy pigs.

The wasted food from these buffets goes to Pig-farms.

Think of all the people in the 3rd World who could have been fed today!!

This is definately unGodly....HASHEM does not approve!

Waste indeed !

OMG !! Can we PLEASE talk about the amount of waste of PLASTIC in the frum community ???! What ever happened to serving guests with your Shabbos best on Shabbos and Yom Tov ? Those who say they can't afford nice plates and cutlery ? How much are you spending in the long run on plastic every week ? Not to mention the huge amount of disposable tin pans being thrown away each week because people don't feel like toveling them ! Honestly, if anyone from any politically correct environmental group ever spent a Shabbos in a frum neighborhood, they'd get the shock of their life. It's as though no one here has ever heard of recycling or using eco-friendly stuff. Waste ? Egads !! Let's start with the waste of resources and money !
