Zeeshan Khan, who is popularly known as the 'Eco Man of India' said, "My motive is to connect people with innovative and interactive ideas and motivate them for sustainable living. It is more effective than the traditional ways and helps to create mass awareness, with this mindset me and my team have successfully recycled more than 300 tons of waste plastic in the last couple of years. We have even developed a low cost 'Smart Restroom' monitoring system for public toilets, which is creating a positive social impact and is working in line towards the sustainable development goals and Clean India Mission."
Zeeshan Khan has introduced a unique and first of its kind concept in the world called 'Pickating' which means picking up and skating, with the first being started from Bhopal, where Twenty professional skaters went around the streets and picked up plastic and other garbage along the way. The main objective of the event was to make people aware about waste management and promote the concept of a litter-free city.
Zeeshan Khan, who is also the Co-Founder of Relive Eco Foundation said, "Waste management is a critical concern and needs our attention therefore we are working towards launching an Eco India Movement where I shall be traveling to more than 30 cities across India to connect people from all regions and to promote eco-friendly living and lifestyle. We are planning to promote waste management in the rural areas of the country as well."

On the business front, Zeeshan is all set for a big, million-dollar investment in India & UAE along with his Dubai-based Venture partner in the field of Technology, Art, and Private Jet travel industry.
