What if I told you that the 700 feet of bubble wrap you ordered was actually just 400 feet? Shocking, isn’t it? In the bustling world of e-commerce, bubble wrap is a crucial component, safeguarding our goods during transit. But are we really getting what we order? FJ Treasures, a popular YouTube channel, decided to put this to the test.
