She’s as famous for her activism as she is for her acting, and now Alicia Silverstone has combined the two — sort of.

Silverstone is one of a handful of celebrities participating in “Plugged In”, an online reality show sponsored by Ford. On the show, teams of two compete to win a brand new, electric Ford Focus.

The teams compete by going on eco-filled scavenger hunts throughout various cities; the hunts are designed by the celebrity participants. Silverstone helmed the San Francisco challenge, and sent her teams to a vegan restaurant, a recycled art supply center, an animal shelter and more.

“Welcome to my hometown of San Francisco,” she says in the video. “I’ll be putting three local teams of two to the test to challenge their knowledge of the city by the bay, and along the way explore some places that have special meaning in my life.”

Contestants were sent clues to destinations around the city. They made eco-friendly birdhouses, snacked on the same pickles Silverstone loved as a child, and posed with her favorite vegan wedding cake. They were also sent to the Peninsula Humane Society — where Silverstone’s mother used to volunteer — to learn why adopting pets trumps buying them. For that challenge, the contestants had to take a photo with an adoptable animal and upload it to Flickr.

Although only one team was able to win the game and move on to the next round in L.A., the third-place team brought home a very special prize of their own — a rescue dog from the shelter! Looks like Silverstone’s plan to improve animal awareness worked like a charm.

“Animal Cruelty” And Criminal Intent

Animal advocates need to be more aware of the realities surrounding these laws.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Vegan “Process”

When we reject human injustice, nobody needs to go on a “journey” to get to that point. Where animals are concerned, we’re all too eager to pack the car, don the sunglasses and go for ride before we see the truth of what has been in front of us the entire time.

Vegan Advocacy Ideas For The Arts

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
