Like most kids Jared Mann enjoys playing with bubble wrap. Thanks in part to his ingenuity and the Bubble Wrap Competition for Young Inventor’s, Jared is also the creator of an energy-saving device made using bubble wrap.
Jared was awarded second place in the Bubble Wrap Competition for Young Inventor’s, and received a $5,000 savings bond for inventing the “Fridge Guard”.
The invention uses sheets of bubble wrap to help trap cold air inside the refrigerator whenever you open the door. By keeping the cold air inside, the fridge uses less energy.
Jared’s father says they use the invention in their own home, and have seen a savings in their monthly power bill.
