Ever since plastic was invented, it has been used for numerous purposes. Besides the usage of plastic, its disposal has been an alarming issue these days. Improper disposal of plastic causes pollution when the plastic is thrown into the seas and oceans. This plastic is accumulated in oceans in a vast quantity that creates a massive threat to marine life. More than ten lakh marine animals are killed every year because of the plastic that is getting accumulated in the ocean. Our objective is to create a full-fledged model that recognizes plastic in marine water using CNN with greater accuracy.
