It’s no secret we love Justin Timberlake. He’s hot, he’s funny, he’s single, and, oh, he’s into the environment too. On October 15 the “Sexy Back” singer and actor will be awarded by the Environmental Media Association with a “Futures Award.” This accolade, which Edward Norton, Rosario Dawson, and Maroon 5 have also received, honors future environmental leaders in entertainment.

The EMA pointed out that in addition to J.T.’s eco-friendly golf course in Tennessee he also does what he can to reduce his carbon footprint while on tour.

This isn’t the first time that Timberlake has been awarded for his good deeds. Back in April at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards he was presented with the “Big Help Award” for inspiring kids to help others.
