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.

This week in the veganverse IV

Wonder why everyone is so concerned with vegan underwear, hot dogs, and how we’ll celebrate Easter? Me too! It’s this week in the veganverse, round four.

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
