Standardisation of alcohol

Research lead approach of standardising alcohol packaging to reduce consumption

This project aims to inform the public about the health risks and mental health risks of drinking alcohol excessively by using the packaging as that is what people have access to. Since alcoholism and excessive drinking is such a big problem in the UK, several 1000s of people die a year because of excessive drinking. Whether it’s car accidents or alcohol poisoning, or something else, it’s a big issue that should be thought of. Utilising the same theory of tobacco packaging within alcohol consumption might work for a while. Still, changing the standard design in different ways every five years could deter people from excessive consumption.
