I think nuclear will be necessary at least temporarily in order to get off fossil fuels fast enough to stop climate change maybe after that we can try for more renewable energy sources and rely less on nuclear power luckily there seem to be some recent technological advancements where it has been discovered how to use the waste to produce more energy another way but you’re right, I am concerned about capitalists cutting corners to save money and causing deaths that were entirely preventable


I think juice bottles or anything made of PETE plastic would work best, it seems milk jugs are less good but I am using them because I have a lot and need to


Recycled food storage
I learned about reusing (carefully cleaned and dried out) juice bottles to use to store dry foods like lentils, rice, flour, sugar, etc. I am excited to do this. I am also using milk jugs but some people would only use PETE plastic. Here are some links. https://www.thriftyfun.com/Reuse-Jugs-for-Dry-Foods.html https://theprovidentprepper.org/packaging-dry-foods-in-plastic-bottles-for-long-term-food-storage/ it should keep insects out but rodents can chew through the plastic. if you have a rodent problem you can just store the jugs of food in thicker plastic containers though

Reusing food containers
you can wash out and reuse the little plastic tub containers that things like yogurt and cottage cheese come in and if you like, you can remove the ink labeling with a cloth or paper towel, 100% acetone nail polish remover, and a little bit of elbow grease I'm really excited about getting free containers
