World War II poster on Rubber Conservation, Make your rubber last


Though not as visually interesting as some of the other posters, the conservation series conveys a dramatic point that conservation on the home front for the war front played an important role in protecting those serving overseas and ultimately in winning the war

With a shortage of natural resources such as wood, paper, and rubber, civilians were asked to gather and donate any extra materials the might have to the war effort.
