The word Mottainai (moe tie nie) roughly translates into “what a waste”, and can be interpreted to sum up when people squander natural resources. Deeply embedded in Japanese folk tales, it is commonly used by parents to ensure children eat all of their rice. Children are taught that if they waste things, the “mottainai ghost” will come.
