Alcohol consumption comes with a lot of responsibility. The unintended consequences of alcoholic beverages have numerous detrimental impacts on the lives of individuals and communities each day. It’s up to all of us to recognize and combat these problems in a socially responsible manner.
One of HOLLA’s primary intentions is to diminish the role that divisive brands play in the industry, and create a truly uniting spirit. Keeping this in mind, we cannot disregard the negative effects alcohol has on certain portions of the population and must be vigilant for the sake of those that need our assistance.
Some of these things may seem like simple common sense, but a little liquid courage can do a lot of harm. We’ve witnessed it first hand, and stand with others in the industry to reduce the abuse of alcohol. Alcohol affects our nervous system, nutrition, sleep, mind, body, relationships, and environment.
Please practice safe and responsible drinking:
- Don’t drink and drive. Call a sober friend, use public transportation, or hit up a driver app!
- Don’t overindulge. Understand your tolerance for alcohol and enjoy in moderation.
- Don’t consume alcohol if you are under the legal drinking age of 21.
- Don’t serve or sell alcohol to minors.
- Don’t vandalize personal or public property.
- Don’t be verbally or physically abusive.
- Don’t leave an overly intoxicated person alone. Seek assistance.
- Do your research. There are numerous online tools to educate you about alcohol responsibility.
There are many resources found by doing a simple Google search, and a few of our favorites may be found below.
