Update: A winner has been selected and details emailed. Thanks to everyone for participating!

The Forecastle Music Festival, which will take place this weekend in Louisville, Kentucky, boasts more than just a big name lineup -- it will also feature the Sustainable Living Roadshow, art exhibitions, the Kentucky Bourbon Lodge and a poster show. Though let's not kid ourselves: The lineup is what you should be excited about: My Morning Jacket, Bassnectar, Wilco, Girl Talk, Andrew Bird, Sleigh Bells, Atmosphere, Neko Case, A-Trak, Flying Lotus, Lucero, Beach House, Justin Townes Earle and we are really just getting started. Check the whole thing out here.

We'd like to send you and a friend to this little shindig; to win tell us the last thing that you did to promote sustainability. We'll also accept things you might do or just things you could do, as long as they make us laugh. Because good thoughts and laughter are what this ailing planet really needs right now.

Submit your responses in the comments below, making sure you include an email address, facebook profile or Twitter handle so we can contact you and give you the passes.

The last thing (big) sustainable thing I did was organize Earth Week at my college SIUE in April. I am sustainable everyday! For the week we hung bottles from all of the trees with facts about bottled water.    When someone asks me the difference between my eggs (cage free) and theirs I say that my chickens are happy!!   What we will be doing for sustainability in the fall is an event for halloween. It will be about zombies and vampires on how they are sustainable (come out at night, do not use much energy, the fact that they will be living eternally and must keep their environment in shape otherwise they have to "live" with it) In order to be down to Earth, you've got to be down with it!! wiegand.katrina@gmail:disqus .com FB- Katrina Faith

Use the politics section of the local newspaper as a diaper. It doesn't matter if it's red or blue..it's still going to smell like poo.

I love Kermit the frog, but when it comes to the cheapest, healthiest, and happiest way to live: it IS easy to be green. I learned this from my eco-friendly parents that recycled, collected rain water for plants, used solar panels for heat in the winter, grew fruits and vegetables, and never let me "run water" while I brushed my teeth. So over the years I've come to the conclusion that anyone can be green, and the first step will change your life. Are you ready? STOP BEING LAZY!  Here's a few easy tips for beginners:  ~Walk everywhere; your wallet, future & present children, dog, and heart will 'thank you'. (In my case, I live downtown so my car is only used on weekends). ~Constantly be donating your unused "whatevers" to a Goodwill; it supports your community and they'll take almost anything. (Think of it this way, a landfill won't get excited about your old lamp but it can make the day of broke newlyweds).~Be nerdy and take your left-overs home; recently I saved my half eaten bag of popcorn after a movie and gave it to a homeless man on the way home. (He was beyond excited and the remaining amount of food went into a mouth and not a garbage can. Complimentary hotel shampoos/soap/etc are also great to give to the needy in the city!)You'll soon find out it benefits everyone to reduce-reuse-recycle, and it SAVES you money! Plus it feels pretty good to do a little good:) Peace&

Shower sex is optimal for being environmentally concious. When showering in pairs we save water as well as zero clean up required. No kleenex or lube necessary.

I try to conserve water by showering with others as often as possible.

I recently moved back to St. Louis after a long stint out of state. Instead of being one of those preppy bros who live in Clayton, Brentwood or CWE and drive into work, I chose to live downtown so I could walk my commute. However, the move downtown has helped me more than I originally imagined. I have become more active and increasingly involved with charity ... even though that means escaping shootouts on Washington Avenue and giving spare change to the homeless around Lucas Park. Thinking green, exercise and charity, that's three birds with one stone.
