I cornered the market on bubble wrap when I moved. Got loads of it left.

That’s the trouble with plastic. It’s so useful - but once you have used it - what do you do with it.

Best use for old bubble wrap that I have found is as insulation. The greenhouse especially - hang a double layer over rods fixed to the sides and roof results in a great place to overwinter non-hardy plants.

Clive, I've never had to buy bubble wrap until today, this will be the first roll I've ever bought. I normally reuse bubble wrap when sending and receiving parcels, I seem to build up a large stash from time to time.

Its frightening how cheap packaging materials are now becoming, a bit silly if considering the environment.

Totally agree Wes. But at least they are cutting back on the amount of actual plastic per item - as I said in the other thread - we used to get packages where the item was surrounded with polystyrene worms or beads.

But my Fathers Day Present arrived in a box with the item internally supported by just three clear plastic balloons or “bladders”.

A bit like individual bubbles from a giant bubble wrap.

So a lot less plastic - far more air.

And like you - I can easily reuse bubble wrap - I use it for insulation. It’s really really good.
