I have a MOC storage question, would apply to vintage or modern.

Looking to store my TVC figures away, I've always thought cardboard boxes were the safest option to reduce the risk of the bubble yellowing but I read about a lot of people using big plastic stackable storage bins.
I'm sure I read somewhere that storing plastic inside a plastic container ran the risk of tiny amounts of gas being given off, mixing/reacting and causing issues - did I completely make this up?

At least with cardboard air gets to move around a wee bit.

What's everyone's thoughts, plastic or cardboard?
Cheers
Col

I use Really Useful boxes which are not air tight (there are holes where the handles attach) so no riskier than cardboard in terms of air flow, and it's really handy being able to stack them
