noun - A carbon-neutral relay is an open water swimming relay that has a net zero carbon footprint. Carbon-neutral relays or Carbon-neutral swims rely entirely on human power as opposed to motorized escort boats. Examples include open water swimming relays that are escorted by outrigger canoes, kayaks, and/or paddle boards only.

The Clean Half marathon relay has a carbon-neutral relay where the swimmers rotate between swimming and paddling in an outrigger canoe for 15 kilometers.

Origin

The term was created by Doug Woodring at the Clean Half Extreme Open Water Swim in Hong Kong, circa 2010.
