The Green Vic 3 Month Pop-up 'Ethical Pub' in Shoreditch

The Green Vic is a 3 month pop-up at 46 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, billing itself as the world's most ethical pub.  It has sourced food and drink for ethical suppliers, including charaties and social enterprises, and has vegan bun slingers The Green Grill in the kitchen.  It's a nice relaxing space, and I'm glad to say that it was very busy when I visited.  Go and spend some money there!

"What makes a pub, the world's most ethical pub? Well according to The Green Vic, which is opening in Shoreditch and billing itself as just that, it's "where everything you buy and use has a positive environmental and social impact."
The pub is popping up for three months at Iron Bloom on Great Eastern Street. On their drinks list you'll find libations that, between them, support over 40 individual non-profit charities. So you can sup a pint of Brewgooder craft lager - a non profit which is donating money to clean water projects in Africa or have a G&T using Ginerosity craft gin made by a social enterprise which helps train, educate and mentor the homeless.
For food they've teamed up with vegan chefs The Green Grill serving up all plant-based products like the Red Devil burger pictured which features a sweet potato, red kidney bean and coriander patty with roasted red pepper, rocket, cheez slice and sriracha mayo. And on Saturdays they'll be throwing a Better World Brunch where five pounds of every ticket purchased will go towards charity.
The desire to make a difference also extends to who you'll find working at The Green Vic. One in four of the staff employed will be from a vulnerable or disadvantaged background, such as the homeless and people with disabilities."
