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.

With widely recognized and inventive brands such as Bubble Wrap® brand cushioning, Cryovac® brand food packaging solutions and Diversey brand cleaning and hygiene solutions, Sealed Air offers efficient and sustainable solutions that create business value for customers, enhance the quality of life for consumers and provide a cleaner and healthier environment for future generations.
