Don't know if it's relevant but I've found white doesn't stand
up to UV very well and falls apart long before black or clear.
I presume the filler in white is, or something like, TiO2 and in
black would be carbon. That said, I get wood delivered in
white plastic wrap, quite thick, printed with the company stuff,
so it is made. I re-use it, but see above re longevity outdoors.
You might try a lumber yard or factory and track it back from
there. Possibility of a spoiled roll going cheap ?

What about the plastic farmers use to wrap rolls of hay? They come in white
green and black.

Another possibility is the plastic they use to wrap boats over the
winter, in my area it's almost universally white. Obviously since they
sit outside this plastic must have some resistance to being exposed to
direct sunlight.
