Bubblewrap's golden day

In all the excitement over the 75th anniversary of the beer can, I alllllmost missed the birthday of another important icon of packaging — bubble wrap!

Yep — that stuff we love to twist, poke, jump on and occasionally even use as void fill is celebrating the big half-century mark this Monday, January 25. To commemorate the occasion, the inventors of bubble wrap, Sealed Air has all kinds of stuff they’re doing.

Check it out at their website.

As for me, I think I’m going to take Monday off to celebrate. I’m sure the boss won’t mind …  it’s not every day that one gets to see the 50th anniversary of an icon.
