Many people are already aware that Styrofoam is harmful both to humans and the environment, yet it is still one of the go-to materials when it comes to shipments; enter Fragile by Mireia Gordi Vila, a Royal College of Art graduate based in London, United Kingdom. It is a reusable protective packaging system that is clever, creative and, of course, eco-friendly.

Fragile by Mireia Gordi Vila is made up of two packaging options. The first is essentially a case within a case, with the inner one boasting a metal framed membrane that creates a supportive skin cover around valuable goods such as collectibles and art pieces. The second is made for bottles and vases, which is also flexible to accommodate different shapes and sizes.
