Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day, first celebrated in 2001, is recognized on the last Monday in January each year. In recent years, Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day has reached new heights, from setting the Guinness World Record for “the most people popping Bubble Wrap® at one time,” to unveiling the Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day Hall of Fame and inducting first-ever Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day Hall of Famer Eric Buss and his Bubble Wrap® Bike.
This iconic packaging material, invented in Hawthorne, New Jersey back in 1957, has become a cultural icon celebrated by millions around the globe. The originally intended use for Bubble Wrap® was entirely different than how it is used today. Inventors Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding originally developed a plastic they hoped to market as textured wallpaper. When that idea did not take off, the inventors began to have some success marketing the product as a greenhouse insulator.
Chavannes then realized that Bubble Wrap® brand cushioning could be used as an improvement from paper and old newspapers for cushioning fragile items. Once the opportunity was identified, the inventors worked hard on the manufacturing process or Bubble Wrap® cushioning in an effort to create an ideal packaging material. After a lot of tinkering, they developed a special, proprietary barrier protection which prevented air from leaking and resulted in the crisp “Pop” that Bubble Wrap® brand is famous for.
