Blue Zones is a well-being transformation company that partners with communities and private enterprises to make healthy choices easier. Today we are in over 70 cities impacting over 4.5 million Americans, helping them live better, longer. We do this by encouraging sustainable changes in the built environment, food environment, and social networks, often suggesting policy changes throughout a community including such places as worksites, schools, restaurants, grocery stores, faith-based communities, convenience stores, and neighborhoods. By helping people live longer and better by making the healthy choice the easy choice, communities can lower healthcare costs, improve productivity, access grants and funding available locally and nationally, and enjoy a higher quality of life as they live, work, learn, worship and grow.

The program is based on principles identified during an ongoing twenty-year worldwide longevity study commissioned by National Geographic, and detailed in the New York Times best-seller, The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest, and The Blue Zones Solution by Dan Buettner. The Blue Zones Project is based on this innovative approach. Our work has been featured in media from Oprah to NPR, the New York Times, WSJ, NPR, National Geographic, and the New England Journal of Medicine.
