CHRIS DARWIN WEIGHS IN...
Week 3 - 12th May 2017
I am starting to feel better about Kyia’s chances of success. She is determined. We
have started to look at the ‘services’ that Kyia is using. I picked services because I
recon they are pretty easy to input and tend not to be scarily large. They are things
like phone bills, entertainment (cinema, Netflix, etc), post, drycleaning and so on.
When I realised that Kyia is good with spreadsheet, I let out another sign of relief.
One of the previous people I tried to help measure their footprint did not like
spreadsheets and that was why they gave up. So with Kyia, we are looking good in
that department. Great.
Kyia's service footprint is look pretty good also. At this stage her services are looking
like they will be about somewhere between 0.1 and 0.2 of a planet, which gives her
lots of space for the big ones: food and transport. She did give me a bit of a wake
because she said ‘What is your Wifi cost?’ With a nasty jolt, I realise that I have
never included them for the last 3 years. So that is the second thing Kyia has spotted
that I have not included. Oups.

FROM KYIA CLAYTON
I didn't do a video post for this week. Still wrapping my head around 'Services'. Still feeling pretty good about this whole challenge (not the 1 planet part).
Monday May 15th Chris and I will meet on the Ryk Goddard Breakfast show on the ABC.
I'm bringing my list of what I am not willing to part with (see below)
2) Driving (at least when it's really cold or I am running late or I am not feeling energetic ... wow that sounds pathetic but true)
5) Coffee out
6) Going to the State Cinema
7) airplane trips back to the US for friend / family visits
