**Glass takes one million years to decompose, which means it never wears out and can be recycled an infinite number of times! **

Gold is the only metal that doesn’t rust,even if it’s buried in the ground for thousands of years.

Actually, neither does platinum. Nor does iridium, osmium, ruthenium, rhodium and palladium, or any other metal that doesn’t contain iron (rust after all is iron oxide).

Actually, those metals WILL oxidize (unlike gold). It’s just not IRON oxide that forms on them while buried, so is technically not “rust.”
