R.I.P. Bubble Wrap. Say Goodbye to the ‘pop’
The pop from bubble wrap will soon be gone.
If you love the sound of popping bubble wrap, you might want to stock up now. They are about to kill bubble wrap as we know it.
Bubble wrap, as we know it, has been around since 1957, and has brought most of us countless hours of joy from the moment that package arrived on our doorsteps. Mom and dad would remove the contents, and kids all over the world would enjoy popping the bubbles, stomping on the the sheets of pure air-filled plastic joy.
Wall Street Journal is reporting that bubble wrap sales are falling amongst new competition in the market. The inventor of bubble wrap, Sealed Air Corp. is changing their packing product to appeal to space-conscious customers. The new version will not pop when you squeeze it. This new product will be called iBubble Wrap
The air-less new version of bubble wrap will cost less to ship to customers.
Time to stock up on the old version before it's gone. I'll store mine next to my collection of incandescent light bulbs.
