Best Uses for Moving Bubble Wrap

BestUsesforMovingBubbleWrap

Bubble wrap – one of life’s simple and most strange pleasures. This weirdly stimulating packing material is often found in massive quantities after a residential move or commercial move – and is seemingly good for nothing else but popping and then recycling. But don’t waste it all! Here’s some great ways to make the most of your bubble wrap after you’re done transporting your belongings, and give it a brand new purpose.

Window Insulation

If your home windows are drafty simply place a layer of bubble wrap over it, keeping the warm air inside and preventing cold air from leaking in. You can additionally utilize bubble wrap to make bathroom windows out to the street more opaque and private.

Grocery Packing

You can protect groceries by placing bubble wrap at the bottom of reusable grocery bags. This keeps fruit and produce from bruising if the bag is dropped, and all glass materials inside the bag will be protected from bumping!!

Accessory Storage

Stuff accessories like backpacks, purses, handbags, big hats, or boots with bubble wrap before placing them in storage in order to keep them from losing their proper shape.

Recycling

You can recycle bubble wrap through UPS’s Eco Responsible Packaging Program that accepts old bubble wrap to be reused; they provide the same service for packing peanuts.

Plant Protection

If you have outdoor potted plants, place bubble wrap around your pots before placing in soil, leaving room for the drainage hole at the lower part of the pot. This insulation can protect the roots of your outdoor plants from getting damaged by the cold as long as it doesn’t remain below freezing for extended amounts of time.

Fun

This is maybe the most obvious and default use for old bubble wrap; allowing children (or you) to indulge in popping or jumping on it, painting in it, or making some weird bubble wrap mummy craft. The possibilities are simply endless.

Donations

You can easily find someone to take a ton of bubble wrap off your hands through venus like Freecycle and Craigslist if you just want it out as soon as possible.
