How many of use the expression waste not, want not?  I remember hearing it when I was growing up, but it wasn't until I was older that I truly understood that if I did not waste that I would not want.  

And when I heard this radio story on NPR last week I was impressed by this effort to put these words into action.  Food for thought, I'd say.
