If you're only semiserious about making a difference in honor of this Thursday's 40th annual Earth Day, don't let your eco-friends bully you into petitioning for stricter federal regulations on toxic coal ash. Just join this weekend's Party for the Planet at Miami Metrozoo and watch captive animals play with garbage. According to the zoo's website, "orangutans will rip open phonebooks," "giant otters will play with PVC," and "pygmy hippos will roll empty beer kegs in their pool."
