The Consumer Council and CCEA are helping young people understand how the consumer choices they make today affect all our lives and environment with Ecoworld - a unique new web-based game launched yesterday (29 April). Ecoworld is designed to help young people start good habits early so that making responsible choices about the food we eat, the energy and water we use, how we travel and the waste we create become second nature.

The Consumer Council said today that the Phoenix natural gas price hike of 28 per cent could put many low income households in crisis at a time when the cost of living is increasing, and could rise further. It called for the Government to consider what further action can be taken to support people struggling to make ends meet, and to redouble its efforts to make sure everyone is claiming all the benefits they are entitled to.
