Title: General Services Acquisition Regulation (GSAR): GSAR Case 2022-G517 Single-use Plastic Packaging Reduction 

The General Services Administration (GSA) is exploring regulations that will reduce single-use plastic consumption by the agency. Single-use plastic poses an environmental risk that is documented as having the potential to impact biodiversity. To learn more, GSA published an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to ask industry about what a change to the single-use plastics industry would entail. The questions focus on packaging materials with the overall intent of addressing not only the items that the Government intentionally consumes, but those products that the Government unintentionally consumes (such as packaging) that then have to be disposed of once the item is delivered.
