Blister Pack

A form of packaging for small retail goods that forms fitted bubbles of plastic or aluminum around the individual products. For example, a blister pack forms a plastic cover over the individual pills in a box of medicine. Blister packs and similar packaging have been criticized for wastefulness, particularly because plastic is not biodegradable.
