|Title||Boy Scouts with newspapers for scrap drive, Seattle, 1944 |
|Caption||Recycling is a relatively new word, but it's not a new idea. For years, people have bundled up newspapers to sell them back to pulp and paper mills. In many communities, this was an easy way for households and groups to raise money. During World War II, many of Seattle's school children collected newspapers as part of the war effort. This 1944 photo shows a group of Boy Scouts loading bundles of newspapers into a truck. |
