pdf export file size to big

Hi Everyone!
I am new here and also new to this kind of format of a forum... I tried searching for an answer first, but the results didn't really lead me to any threads. So sorry, if this has already been answered!

I am a teacher so I am scanning a lot of pages that are colored but simply colored (I mean not like photo images - see attached example).

I scan in 300dpi, coloured --> file size: 1MB I import to GIMP in 300dpi, crop, export --> file size: 6 to 9 MB

Is there a quick and easy way to export smaller pdf-files (besides importing in a lower resolution)?

Thanks!

p.s. ... and if there is no quick and easy way to export smaller files - is there a way to convert PDF-files into smaller PDF-files (ideally an entire stack of files at once...)

p.p.s. btw, I am using Linux-Mint und GIMP 2.10
