4- Citrus and Banana Peels
The peelings of citrus fruits and bananas have enough matter left in them for another go-round. Add fresh peels to your morning smoothie or to your pasta for extra fiber, zest flavor and vitamins.

6- Milk Carton
We use a lot of milk every day. We add them to our morning cereal, smoothies, or to many dishes. Chances are, we’ve got a steady supply of milk cartons streaming out of your house every month. And what do we do with these cartons? Throw them away? Having new kitchen design in mind, why don’t we try to reuse them?
Following the spirit of new kitchen design, you may want to try making over-sized ice cubes by freezing water in milk cartons. It’s perfect for stacking in coolers or tossing into the yard for pets to play with. You can also use them for storing stock, soups and stews. With their structure, you can just slice off how much you need then put the rest back into the freezer.
With their classic and simple design, you can just paint them and then transform to cool items like a little birdhouse or pen organizers.
