Dec 15, 2015, 09:29 ET from Sealed Air

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- First things first, the Bubble Wrap® we all know and love is not going anywhere. When the news broke last summer that we'd be introducing a new kind of Bubble Wrap® that would no longer pop, the reaction from all of you–albeit misunderstood –was humbling. We know (and love) that you have a special relationship with Bubble Wrap®.  Whether you're packing breakables into moving boxes or popping it for stress relief, there's nothing like the one, the only, the original.

So this January, help us celebrate all of the things that make Bubble Wrap® loveable, during the 15th annual Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!

WHAT:

Sealed Air, manufacturer of protective and specialty packaging for food and consumer goods, will be celebrating the 15th annual Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day.

WHEN:

Monday, January 25th, 2016 (all day)

WHERE:

Join Sealed Air in celebrating on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Use the official hashtag – #BubbleWrapDay – for a chance at a retweet, or more.

WHAT ELSE:

Sealed Air's long history of courageous determination and innovation began nearly 50 years ago with the invention of Bubble Wrap®, the pioneering protective packaging technology. In a garage in Hawthorne, N.J., two engineers, Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding, were trying to make plastic wallpaper with a paper backing. However, when they realized no one wanted to buy their wallpaper, Marc and Al decided to create something new, which led to this industry-changing product. And that fearless and undeterred spirit of determination still runs through Sealed Air today.

Here are some ways we encourage celebrating Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day:

  • Post pictures and video to our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn pages of you, your kids, your pets – anyone enjoying the thrill of Bubble Wrap!
  • Keep Bubble Wrap® on your desk at work and pop the bubbles to feel the stress disappear with each POP...POP...POP. Get the stress box here.
  • Create your own Bubble Wrap® Calendar full of  tasks behind every bubble that you don't want to do so that you get to pop things off of your to-do list each day
  • Invent a new reason to use Bubble Wrap® (fashion accessory, a new sport) and share your best ideas with us on social media
  • Create  an original piece of "pop" art by injecting paint into Bubble Wrap® similar to these masterpieces
  • Write a song (or Bubble Rap) telling us why you love Bubble Wrap® and share your best jingle with us on our Twitter and Facebook pages
