ELMWOOD PARK, N.J., Jan. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday, January 28, fans all over the world will observe Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day, a day when the world celebrates the fun side of a material that has protected millions of products over the last 53 years.


Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day is celebrated every year on the last Monday in January. Despite the attempts of imitators, there is only one Bubble Wrap®; a product which has transcended its intended use of protecting valuables to become a "pop" culture phenomenon.

Bubble Wrap® brand cushioning is most recognized for the satisfying release and gleeful joy that comes with the popping of each plastic cell.

The invention of Bubble Wrap® brand cushioning led to the founding of Sealed Air, a Fortune 500 Company that owns the registered trademark, in 1960.  Today, Sealed Air operates in 51 countries and each year the company makes enough Bubble Wrap® to stretch to the moon and back.
