There are at least 250 Facebook groups dedicated to the packing staple cum low-tech stress reliever, a turn of events that would’ve surprised its inventors, who set out to create a textured wallpaper in the late 1950s.
Legend has it that bubble wrap was inspired on a descent into Newark Airport when one of the inventors noticed the “fluffy clouds that seemed to cushion the plane’s descent.”
