Scale back GSA and change procurement rules to save money and fuel/carbon. This would save money and lots of carbon due to the extra shipping. Currently many agencies must purchase items such as pens and copy paper through GSA, when those prices are far more than Walmart or Staples and the shipping adds much CO2. When federal agencies order paper through GSA, each dept may receive individual shipments, where as Staples/Walmart/other receives one large shipment and can serve all in that area.
