All plants take carbon dioxide out of the air during photosynthesis, which converts sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into the nutrition that plants need. But bamboo is able to take larger amounts of carbon dioxide out of the air because it grows quickly. The carbon stored in the bamboo is then stored in products made from bamboo, like paper, fabric, flooring, and furniture.
