No more dookie Christmas gifts.

That’s the message Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and his wife Adrienne are sending this holiday season. The pair have teamed up with the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to ask consumers to buy Christmas gifts that benefit the environment.

Instead of purchasing mass-produced “sh*t gifts” that are prone to breaking, the Armstrongs are encouraging people to “protect the polar bear or revive the rainforest” instead, by buying presents from the NRDC.

The NRDC Green Gifts website offers 50 environmentally-friendly gift choices in a range of prices, including options to save wolves, plant trees, educate children, green libraries, fight pollution, build parks and more, including the big-ticket item: visiting the last Gray Whale Nursery in Baja.

The Armstrongs aren’t the only celebs to join up with the NRDC. Actors Kyra Sedgwick and Tony Shaloub also recorded videos making their pleas, and even Santa Claus himself got in on the action, reminding us that NRDC offers “great gifts that protect the planet from pole to pole.”
