Like many items of convenience, such as sliced bread and sandwich bags, the history of stretch wrap is not commonly known. In fact, most people don’t even know it by its name, and it is often thought to be the same as things like bubble wrap. Packaging film is generally taken for granted, but it has a much richer past than you might think. Imagine what it would be like to send a pallet of boxed items without stretch film to cover it. While it isn’t a nightmare, it certainly presents a lot of different problems that you don’t have to worry about today.
