Conservation of materials was very important for the war effort in World War II. Your Scrap Brought It Down by Zudor was printed in 1942 to encourage the collection and reuse of valuable material including rubber,rags,and metal. The United States entered the war in December,1941,which required a great demand for public service announcements to keep the nation motivated and united in the war effort. This poster by Zudor attributes the downed Nazi plane directly to US home front?s conservation efforts to encourage further participation. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.

U.S. Recycling in WWII
With shortages in basic materials during World War II, the government appealed to the public to collect and donate certain items. These included most types of metal, kitchen fat, newspapers, rags and products made out of rubber. The items were then to be recycled into weapons and other items necessary for the war effort.
