National Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day
Why do we love popping bubble wrap so much? Some studies have shown that the popping can relieve stress and can sometimes even give us a chemical hit of our favourite….dopamine!
Bubble wrap was invented in 1957 by engineers Alfred Fielding and Marc Chavannes in Hawthorne, New Jersey. The company Bubble Wrap began in 1960, and in 2015 actually created a non-popping version called iBubble Wrap. Why would they even bother! But not to worry because the much loved, poppable version is still on the market and I don’t think it’s going anywhere.
