Welcome to GreenItUp, a database of common items, and how to reduce, reuse, and recycle them.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Vegetables

Includes kitchen scraps (vegetable peels, roots, seeds) and wilted, not-so-prime vegetables.


Become carnivorous.


If the vegetables are still somewhat edible but not “pretty”, make chicken/vegetable stock/broth. Old and/or non-edible parts of carrots, celery, onions, asparagus stems, and herbs, work well.

Feed your peels or older, rotting veggies to your pet guinea pig, rabbit, hamster, goat, etc (thanks, Nancy).

    If you have a pet goat, rabbit, hamster, guinea, pig, feed the scraps to them. They’re quite happy to much on peels or older vegetables.
