Here is a secret for people interested in budget long term food storage. Your average soda bottle is food grade plastic and can be used in conjunction with oxygen absorbers to store food long term. No need for Mylar bags and food grade buckets. You can put food directly into recycled soda bottles and they will stay safe. Don’t believe me? check it out on the LDS cannery website. They have a great deal of information that explains why soda bottles are safe to store food in.
