According to husband and wife duo, Nicole & Charlie, "Goa Green is dedicated to show you a Goa that isn’t just surf, sun and sand. The Goa we would like to present to you is the land where we have grown up, along its rivers, snaking towards the deep blue sea, around its hills, meadows on top of hills, hills rolling on to forts, forts cliff-hanging on golden beaches."
The Bicycle Trip
This Panjim based company was founded by Jigeesha & Abhinav with the central objective to get Goa on bicycles. Step one of their journey has been to share the rich heritage, lush nature and toothsome cuisine of Goa by way of conducting bicycle trips for tourists.
Offering a number of trips in and around the capital, they also organize custom tours and are happy to accommodate specific interests and experience.

Offbeat Goa believes that "if enough places are encouraged to lead their business in a more sustainable manner we will not only solve most of our tourism related problems but eventually turn Goa into a sought after eco-friendly destination that attracts travellers that respect the land, which will in turn encourage local culture, more small local family run businesses, increase employment, reduce waste, and create an overall gentler, kinder and cleaner environment."

They also organize their own events such as the New Earth Gathering & Good Karma Garage Sale, along with regular beach clean ups & live music gatherings.
