In this research, the effect of several policy measures aiming to reduce the use of plastic shopping bags in Israel was assessed. Acknowledging the damage caused to the environment by HDPE bags, that are distributed, free of charge, by the supermarkets and shops in Israel was the motivation for this research. The research was ordered by the Israeli ministry of Environmental protection in order to support the selection of the appropriate policy tool.
