Blue Zones Promote Healthy Lifestyles
The Kailua Village Business Improvement District is encouraging everyone to "Go Blue!"
The inclusion of West Hawaii as a Blue Zones Project makes Hawaii Island the first county in the nation to go completely blue. What's a Blue Zone anyway? The Blue Zones Project started after National Geographic studied five places on earth where humans live longer and have healthier lives. Among the key attributes these communities shared: eating right, staying active, reducing stress, mental and social well being and waking up with a purpose.
KTA Super Stores has embraced Blue Zones and you can see evidence of this right here in their Kailua store. In-store signage and shifting product placement to highlight healthier food choices encourages us all to lead a healthy lifestyle. Lowering obesity rates, smoking and chronic disease creates a healthier place to live, work and play. And that is something all of us can support and get behind.
