Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day on January 31

January 31st is the "official" Bubble Wrap appreciation day. Happy 54th Birthday Bubble Wrap!
Who invented Bubble Wrap? The story begins in 1957 in a garage in Hawthorne, NJ with two engineers, Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding. Marc and Al were trying to make a plastic wallpaper with a paper backing. Surprisingly, this product didn’t take off. However, they realized that their invention could be used as a cushioning packaging material. See more info about the Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day.
