We started our website two years ago on the 26th of March, on that day was the 4th anniversary of Earth Hour, which started in Australia and went international the following year in 2008. Here we are again excited to be observing and celebrating our third Earth hour here at Ready For The Shift. What this states is that for one hour you will turn off your computers, TV’s, tablets, lights as well folks, to show that we are one world under one roof, showing the world, that together we can save our environment. Saving the earth is up to each and every one of us. During this time, you can help by making a difference by cleaning up the oceans, picking up trash around your neighborhood that has fallen out of barrels, planting some seeds inside for an outside garden in the Spring, spread awareness about climate change, consider recycling or reusing, anything you can do to promote the health of the planet and it’s resources; there are many things  you can do in this one hour to help save this planet while you have the lights out!
