Management of plastic waste globally is seen as a major concern since plastic waste has enormously affected the environment and considered among others, as a contributory factor to climate change. It is observed that the plastic waste phenomenon has increased over a period, not only in quantity but also as a disastrous to the environment. This raised an empirical question of whether innovative management of plastic waste by relevant stakeholders such as organisations, communities, and government are yielding the desirable outcomes. This article is aimed at exploring the insight of various role players on the application of green practices as an effort for creative ways of preserving environment, and social welfare. The qualitative approach with semi-structured interviews were used to collect data from relevant stakeholders in plastic waste management. In the process, the findings revealed the ineffectiveness of management of plastic waste due to lack of strategic approaches and innovative ways for effective plastic waste management. It is further observed that creative ways of managing plastic waste could be beneficial to the welfare of communities. It was also articulated that this approach can be economically profitable to the organisation and communities. The idea of creative ways and the use of technology on plastic waste management is found to be in line with the strategic point of view that executive management and community representatives had about deal with plastic waste for economic viability and preservation of the environment.
