The Citrus Mate Story
Like most great innovations of history, Citrus-Mate started in a garage. The year was 1989, and the Estabrooks family wanted to do something right for their community because life can be a stinky place, but there was no reason to take it out on the world with messy, unnecessary and harmful chemicals. Every can of air freshener was made DIY style, free from anything that would hurt the environment, though a little elbow grease was added with the oranges when the cans were filled by hand. As demand increased, this craft mentality continued when the company expanded into a warehouse on the scenic Oregon coast, because there’s no reason to leave your hometown when you’ve outgrown your garage.
