Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day? Let’s Appreciate New Technologies
Yesterday, January 26th, was Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day. For the past couple years, this day has caused us to wonder. What is it about this old packaging technology that we appreciate?

But the truth is that when you use Bubble Wrap®, you are also using a product that takes up a lot of storage space, has bubbles that pop during shipping and is not biodegradable.
A year later, we feel the same way. There are so many options out there for packaging inside the box that are better than these large rolls of bubbles. If you haven’t yet heard of Geami, it’s time to discover it! It’s a sustainable paper packaging product that we’ve proved is amazing at protecting products inside a box.
