Zac tries his hand at sheep herding and finds the new way of living is exactly what he needs.

The quest to extend life on earth is as old as the dawn of time and Sardinia is home to the oldest people in the world. Zac and Darin go to Sardinia to find out the secret to leaving a longer life. Zac contemplates getting out of Hollywood, Ca and finds that in Sardinia, a simple way of life, leads to a longer and healthier life.

Sardinia is one of only five “Blue Zones” in the world which means that the residents often reach an age of 90 or older. There are many theories as to why Sardinians leave such long lives from their diet of beans and vegetables or because their lives are rooted in tradition because of their isolation from the rest of the world. Zac and Darin take a journey through Sardinia to get their own take on why everyone here lives so long.

Sardinia is a large Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea. It has nearly 2,000km of coastline, sandy beaches and a mountainous interior crossed with hiking trails. Its rugged landscape is dotted with thousands of nuraghi – mysterious Bronze Age stone ruins shaped like beehives. A voyage over an emerald sea, past characteristic coves and beaches of snow white sand … this is Sardinia, an island that strikes its visitors with natural contrasts, the lights and colors of a region that boasts old traditions and a wild and pure nature.

Sardinia is home to nearly 4 million sheep and that makes the island one of the areas of the world with the highest density of sheep. Sardinia has been for thousands of years specializing in sheep breeding. Zac tries his hand at sheep herding and finds the new way of living is exactly what he needs.

Kindhumans is a positive movement of respect, understanding, and small conscious decisions with a big positive impact. We are building a community based on these ideals.

As citizens and consumers, we are more empowered with choice than ever before. At the same time, we have less trust in the products we consume and the companies that make them. We want to make the right choices, but in order to do that we need accurate information.
