Why do bananas ripen quicker inside paper bags?

As a banana ripens, it gives off ethylene gas. This gas is instrumental in the ripening process. In fact, it is this same gas that is used by banana importers to accelerate banana ripening once the bananas are ready to go to market. By placing bananas in a paper bag, you are concentrating the gas that is emitted from the fruit. As the concentration increases and the ripening process accelerates, more gas is emitted faster. Essentially, you have a chain reaction taking place -- more ripening means more gas, which means more ripening, and so forth.
