read that recycle 2 containers are safest especially if they have the fork and knife symbol meaning food safe. Suggested getting them from a local school or restaurant.

Food safe containers are made from 1,2,4,5 plastics, and should be imprinted on the bottoms.

I've been using large food containers from things like pickles, and other foods. I buy things in large quantity at Costco and often packed in large plastic containers. Figuring one reuse as a planter should be okay. Have been good for radishes and other small plants. Sometimes I have to cut off the top if it's narrow, so access to the bottom is opened up. I use a magic marker and write the plant name and date right on the container.
