My choice for storage are glass jars, specifically from 420 Science! I love the designs, they have a good seal. Even though it is breakable if your 420 Science jar is purchased from their website if it breaks you get a replacement for only $5 shipping fo life! Which is pretty dandy! The Weed Nerd jar below is my fave *heart*
