Sweden’s Greta Thunberg set off from the United States for the United Nations climate conference and landed in Lisbon, Portugal, on Wednesday after weeks of crossing the Atlantic Ocean. From Lisbon to Madrid, Spain, Greta abandoned the “low-carbon” way of travel. On the 6th, local time, she arrived in Madrid by European train. Interestingly, a spanish community association was once wishful thinking of offering it a more environmentally friendly way to travel – a donkey.

The association posted an open letter on Facebook on The 4th, in which the association’s president said that thanks to Greta, all members of the association were “aware of the importance of environmental protection” and decided to join Greta in fighting for the cause.
Therefore, the association decided to sponsor a locally farmed donkey because it was an “eco-transport erdion of the most environmentally respected” inherited by its ancestors.
