Based in North County, Rossel & Co. upcycles malt bags from local breweries and distilleries to create the beautiful, durable Bountiful Bags. Rossel & Co. not only diverts waste from our landfills with The Bountiful Bag, but also gives back locally by donating a portion of each sale to I Love A Clean San Diego. We are grateful for Rossel & Co.’s commitment to sustainability and creative, innovative approach to zero waste!
