Chloroplast is used in photosynthesis. In the Chloroplast the sunlight and water go in and are seperated and sent to their designated areas to continue to process of photosynthesis or cellular respiration.

Chloroplasts are the organelle's food, basically. They are found in the leaves of green plants and in some algae. They have a green pigment, giving that part of the plant its greenish color, as they contain chlorophyll. Chlorophyll uses the sun's energy (given to the plant by sunlight) and convert it to chemical energy that the plant can use to grow and develop (called photosynthesis). Chloroplasts also take in sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide!
