In an interview with InStyle Magazine (available now), Silverstone opened up about the steps she took in make her living area more green. From the article,

“‘I love living this way,’ Alicia tells the mag. ‘It’s so satisfying and inspiring.’ The actress, who shares her L.A. abode with musician hubby CHRISTOPHER JARECKI, has long campaigned to save the environment, and she’s found inventive ways to be green-conscious at home, whether it’s using energy-saving appliances, putting solar panels on the roof, or even recycling the flooring from an old bowling alley to make her table top.”

The bowling alley flooring is a new one. Come to think of it, it probably looks really beautiful. Silverstone is also a committed animal rights activist and vegan. According to the site, she was voted “Sexiest Female Vegetarian” by PETA in 2004.

“It’s just so lovely to appreciate the trees and birds and animals,” she says. “Everything you do in the name of the environment not only saves your health, it saves your soul.”

Well spoken. Check out this month’s issue of InStyle for more!
