This year’s annual Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day – celebrated today – is all about getting out the vote. Sealed Air, the company that manufactures the plastic packaging solution, invites Bubble Wrap fans to cast their ballots in its Pop the Vote contest to determine the next bubble shape.
The Bubble Wrap everyone knows and loves is no longer relegated to a common, cellular shape. Bubble Wrap (specifically, the inflatable Bubble Wrap IB brand) can now be made into stars, hearts, smiley faces, and more. The new offerings are part of the Expressions line, which also offers special phrases, logos and colors.
Visit the Pop the Vote webpage (sealedair.com/popthevote) today through February 13 to cast a vote. The most popular option will be revealed on Bubble Wrap’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds February 17 at 10:15 a.m. EST. Soon after the revelation, the winning option will be added to the Bubble Wrap IB Expressions line.
Voters have three categories from which to choose: Greetings – Thank You, Congrats, Hugs & Kisses XOXO; Shapes – Ice cream cone, Sun, Flower, Dog Bone, Music Notes; and Patterns – Basket wave, Cable knit, Chevron.
In addition to participating in Pop the Vote on Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, fans are encouraged to visit the Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day webpage and show their love for the product on their social media accounts. Here are a few sharing ideas:
