Abstract: Nigeria is a country which has the abundance of human and natural resources, including skills and talents which are needed to maximize the green entrepreneurial opportunities in the plastic recycling for sustainable development. Recognizing and maximizing the green entrepreneurial opportunities in the plastic recycling industry is therefore a climate change adaptation and mitigation strategy to ensure sustainable development in Nigeria. Combating the menace of plastic pollution has become a global environmental challenge which has profound climate change impacts. Plastic pollution has profound negative impacts on the health, socio-economic and agricultural sectors in Nigeria but this menace can be curbed via plastic recycling. Through literature review and participant observation, this study identified that there’s a great need for recycling plastic wastes into a solution for wealth creation in Nigeria. It further seeks to identify innovative ways which includes the use of poetry and educational blogs to educate communities and institutions about the green entrepreneurial opportunities in plastic recycling in Nigeria.
