RECYCLE THIS LETTER:  A sign-on letter initiated by the Government
Purchasing Project asks President Clinton to direct federal agencies to
follow his "Buy Recycled" executive order.  The letter says that sale of
virgin copier paper by the Government Services Agency "violates the letter
and intent of your executive order, confuses federal purchasers, penalizes
recycled paper companies, and consequently discourages" recycling programs.
A study showed that only 19% of the paper purchased by federal agencies
through the GSA in 1995 complied with the "Buy Recycled" order.  Groups
that want to sign the letter should reach the Project at (202)387-8030 or
