Last summer, I wrote about the new "popless" Bubble Wrap that Sealed Air (Charlotte, NC) was producing—not good news for those who love popping the air cushions in this famous protective packaging that is nearly 50 years old!
The company wants fans to know that the Bubble Wrap we all know and love isn't going anywhere. According to a release, when the news broke last summer that the company would be introducing a new popless Bubble Wrap, the reaction from many—albeit misunderstood, said the company—was humbling. "We know (and love) that you have a special relationship with Bubble Wrap," said Sealed Air. "Whether you're packing breakables into moving boxes or popping for stress relief, there's nothing like the one, the only, the original."
So, the company is holding its 15th annual Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day on Monday, Jan. 25, 2016—all day long! The company even suggests ways to celebrate Bubble Wrap. You can post pictures and videos to the company's Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn pages of you, your kids—even your pets—enjoying the thrill of Bubble Wrap. You can keep Bubble Wrap on your desk at work and pop the bubbles to feel the stress disappear with each pop . . . pop . . . pop!
There's a Bubble Wrap calendar with tasks that you don't want to do behind every bubble that you can pop off your to-do list. Or create an original piece of "pop" art by injecting paint into Bubble Wrap.
So, while you're packing those fragile items to ship to friends and relatives, let the creative juices flow and get some innovative ideas going for Bubble Wrap.
Or just sit around and pop away while you're watching football!
