Plants have an organelle called chloroplasts which contain the pigment chlorophyl giving it its green color. chlorophyl absorbs sunlight, and the chloroplasts use the energy from the sunlight to create glucose which goes to the mitochondria which turns that into ATP

Plants also use chlorophyll to complete the process of photosynthesis. Animals do not have chlorophyll.
