"Is this patented?  Yes, nobody else can do anything like this" ~ Great quote...PLEASE DON'T do anything like this!! ~ TOO MUCH single serve plastic items out there.  You spend 5 minutes drinking the beverage and all this waste lasts for hundreds if not thousands of years! REFUSE single serve items in plastic!! Glass is SO MUCH better and easier to recycle!!

+Rita L. Yes but the plastic is super durable. Glass is not, unless you want to use borosilicate which is very pricey, so you would be crushed in retail.
