Green Common is a plant-based chain by social venture Green Monday and one of many cogs in their wheel to promote sustainable living. An edible homage to both East and West, you'll find Laksa, Udon Noodles and Pho Soup under the same roof as Spaghetti Bolognese, Happy Nuggets and Fries. Why are they happy you ask? Because all Green Common meals have been substituted with alternative proteins to save their animal counterparts AND prevent climate change. If that's not enough, you'll also find the wildly popular, lab cultivated Beyond Meat Burger and Califia Farms plant based milks for your prized take-away coffee.
