DrinkWise, in partnership with Retail Drinks Australia, has developed the “Choose to DrinkWise.” initiative which aims to promote responsible alcohol consumption.
The initiative will be rolled out across national liquor retailers and independently owned and operated liquor stores to remind consumers of the importance of moderation and making smart choices when it comes to purchasing and consuming alcohol.
DrinkWise and Retail Drinks Australia have partnered together to ensure consumers receive moderation messages when they are in the process of buying and consuming alcohol products and to allow retailers to use a consistent message across retail environments and media.
Retailers can access the resources via the Retail Drinks Australia website: www.retaildrinks.org.au/policies-advocacy/choose-to-drinkwise

Moderation advice for consumers
It is important to familiarise yourself with the facts about alcohol, including binge drinking and drink driving. Enjoy alcohol in moderation to reduce the short and long term side effects of drinking.
The DrinkWise Standard Drinks Calculator has been designed to give you a quick and simple way to understand what a standard drink is and how many standard drinks are in your favourite beverage. It’s for educational purposes only and should not be relied upon to predict blood alcohol level (BAC) or any other measure.
Give your baby the best possible start and avoid the risks of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). To prevent harm from alcohol to their unborn child, women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy should not drink alcohol. For women who are breastfeeding, not drinking alcohol is safest for their baby. Find out more here.
