Our Mission

Chicago is not only our home but it is also yours. Chicago SUP is a green company and we believe in helping protect the Great Lakes for future generations to enjoy by organizing beach and water cleanups throughout the season. Chicago SUP strongly supports efforts to protect this fragile ecosystem from pollution and invasive species such as the Asian Carp and Zebra mussel, supporting the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project and their efforts to raise awareness of rip current dangers and drowning prevention, and the biggest effort we can take part in on a daily basis, keeping our beaches clean! While the City of Chicago does its part to clean the beaches on a daily basis, our beaches are busy places! We’ve created Chicago Clean’S UP with the goal to help eliminate the plastics and other trash that unfortunately tarnishes our beautiful beaches and lake, the shining jewel of our city. While our team does our part day in and day out to keep the beaches and water clean, we can use your help! The Chicago SUP team is working to bring awareness to, and eliminate, the issues effecting Chicago beaches and the Great Lakes to keep them clean and safe for everyone to enjoy for years to come.

Teaming up with Chicago Clean’s UP

Have a group of people who are inspired to help clean up? Then partner with Chicago Clean’S UP! With your group’s desire to beautify the beaches of Chicago, guidance from the Chicago Clean’S UP team with structured cleanup formats and challenges, and fun on the water with Chicago SUP, organizing a beach cleanup has never been a better way to plan an event! We host corporate and team building outings specifically geared towards community service that can be custom tailored to your groups needs. NOTE: Paddling is NOT a requirement to setup a beach clean up with Chicago Clean’S UP, but this is always a welcome reward for participants. Our mission is simply to give back and do our part in any way we can to help keep our beaches and waterways clean. To organize a clean up for a company event, school or team activity, or any other kind of group, contact info@chicagosup.com for more details on the programs we offer.
