It’s Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!Yes, you heard right, it’s officially Bubble Wrap appreciation day, which is observed on the last Monday in January every year.
Did you know bubble wrap was not intentionally created for bubble popping pleasure?
That’s right, the truth is Bubble Wrap was originally created from two shower curtains being sealed together, the inventors then tried to market this as wallpaper! Next, they tried to market it as greenhouse insulation (some people even still use it in this way today). A year later the inventors discovered its true calling and it’s now used worldwide to cushion and protect fragile items in shipping or storage (as well as bubble popping pleasure of course).
Each year there is even a Bubble Wrap brand ‘Young Inventor’ award that encourages finding new ways to use Bubble Wrap outside of packaging. These young inventors work hard every year to try to create the newest Bubble Wrap craze.
