Today is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day! Who came up with idea for Bubble Wrap? Well here's the answer an American engineer named Al Fielding and a Swiss inventor named Marc Chavannes created Bubble Wrap. They were trying to come up with a textured, plastic wallpaper, but they soon thought their wallpaper could be used better as a packaging material.

Al and Marc formed the Sealed Air Corporation and introduced Bubble Wrap to the world in January of 1960. Today, Sealed Air produces enough Bubble Wrap to stretch from the Earth to the Moon each year.

Grab some Bubble Wrap and starting popping away.
