It's a wonderful gesture, but it's a waste of paper. 50,000 virtual e-cranes would've been a better use of time and money.

It's more like a culural need. Surely they use paper originaly for origami purpose. If people don't use an origami paper for origami, that's when you can call it a waste.

Maybe you should get on fast food restaurants, they waste more paper in a millisecond than these paper cranes represent. I'd assert they are in no way a waste, they took thought and effort to make and represent beautiful sentiments of the heart. Like art, that is never a waste..."E-cranes" can be generated in any quantity per second with little or no thought or effort, what you tout is the true representation of waste (meaninglessness).
