When Oregon Partnership complained about Old Navy stores selling alcohol-related t-shirts to teen customers, the media noticed.
Four Portland TV stations, a Eugene TV station, and several Portland radio stations aired extensive coverage, and the reaction is pouring into Oregon Partnership.
Most of what we are hearing is positive from our point of view but for those who believe parents are responsible for what their kids buy and that Old Navy shouldn’t be held accountable, remember this:
By selling t-shirts with messages such as “Beer Pressure, Give in to it,” Old Navy is telling parents that the company doesn’t care about them, their kids, or their community. So much for the “social responsibility” that Old Navy and its parent company GAP, Inc. talk about.
OP is asking that Old Navy prove that they don’t dispute what most parents are telling their teens about the dangers of underage drinking and stop selling those t-shirts that encourage underage drinking or at the very least, make light of it.
