A Few Ounces a Day

About this item

Description This film uses diagrams to illustrate the importance of salvaging common everyday items in an effort to reuse important raw materials for building ships. The film asserts that one day's salvage by the whole British people counteracts the loss of one ship. An emphasis is put on “The importance of salvage to the flow of goods; [and] various examples of useful materials commonly thrown away.” (War Films Bulletin of the Extension Division Indiana University, February, 1943, 10.)
