Mini + Meep creates earthy, eclectic style for tiny humans beginning their journey in the world.
Mini + Meep founder, Fay began creating watercolor based designs in college. She realized she could use these designs to create a positive impact. Fay, and her close friend Michelle, used the nature inspired designs to co-found The Tote Project. After The Tote Project took off, Fay decided to create a similar line of clothes with her baby on the way soon.
Mini + Meep designs are clever and cute originating from nature inspired designs with sayings such as One in a Melon, Flower Child, I Whale Always Love You, and more. All Mini + Meep apparel is made in the United States with cotton organically grown in North Carolina. Mini + Meep garments are printed with non-toxic, eco friendly, water based inks and produced without the use of harmful chemicals, pesticides, or artificial dyes. Onesies and tees are made in partnership with Spiritex a company that values ethical resources and sustainable practices. Spiritex creates a social impact by training and employing refugees paying them a fair wage and helping them start their new lives in America.
Mini + Meep apparel is not only ethically made, but also socially responsible giving 10% of all proceeds to UNICEF’s Children’s Rights and Emergency Relief Organization which supplies children in need with essentials such as clean water and nutrients. After personally donating to UNICEF for a while, Fay decided to make this part of her business model in order to increase her impact.
Fay’s advice to consumers is to question to question where your (or your child’s) clothes come from. I think Mini + Meep perfectly reflects Fay’s values of ethical and sustainable practices. To me, it makes sense that you would want to dress your child in pure garments that are good for the kid and good for the planet. I am so impressed how Mini + Meep is both socially responsible through giving back to children in need and ethically made in the United States. I am excited that Mini + Meep is part of The Honest Consumer community and can’t wait to watch them grow.
