This Original Vintage Poster was printed in the 1940s in Canada. The poster encourages citizens to save and donate their waste rubber and garbage to the war effort in order to help produce tires, life jackets, and oxygen masks for the forces. It was all part of an effort to involve citizens in the war effort. This was their opportunity to pitch in and help the national cause at a local level. During both of the World Wars, the idea that an individual could make a difference with their efforts was nurtured and developed. During World War II posters played an important role in developing a sense of motivation and patriotism.
This poster was commissioned by the National Salvage Office in Ottawa, Canada, under the authority of J.G. Gardiner, the Minister of National War Services.
