Celebrity Tree Count: The month in showbiz news


August 2014 proved a big month for celebrity news, with Mariah Carey sending her dogs off on holiday in Bristol and Peter Andre taking a dip in a swimming pool.

For issue #16 of Delayed Gratification, we digested some of the month’s flimsiest showbiz stories and calculated approximately how many trees had been chopped down to print them.

No trees were harmed for the production of this blog post, but one tree was felled to print this infographic in the paper version of the mag, which you can buy here.
