Plastic Barrel Planter ideas

I think im going to try these for my strawberry beds and maybe some other projects like compost bins and pollinator stations. Barrels are currently $10 locally. Im guessing that white is not good for UV… but is there any difference in blue vs black? Is one better than the other for UV and long lasting? Ideas, thoughts and pics welcome.

I’ve used blue ones for stuff, they don’t seem to have deteriorated in 5+ years.
