In this article we consider the environmental effects if the Fifty Shades of Grey series had not been published. We investigate the number of trees required to produce all the books sold and relate this to the amount of carbon that could have been stored had these trees remained in place since date of publishing. Using this we found the amount of CO2 that could have been stored in these trees to be 179,200 tonnes. This is a negligible amount when compared to road transport and power station emissions for just one day.
