CWA campaigns for under-18 ban on energy drinks

Energy drinks 18 plusThe Country Women of NSW has sent a petition to all our branches regarding a ban on young people buying energy drinks. We will ask the House of Representatives to legislate that energy drinks are not sold to those under the age of 18 with proof of age required for purchase. Energy drinks which contain high amounts of caffeine mixed with other ingredients can elevate heart rate and blood pressure, and disrupt sleep. This can be especially dangerous to children and young people who are still growing. The long term effects of energy drinks are not yet known.

Branches will be asking members of the public to support this campaign and sign the petition at their stalls and public events. If you see a CWA petition in your local area, please consider supporting this petition.
