ethical. sustainable. woman-owned. gives back.


Together we are stronger.

Every Friday after school, a bag of nutrient-dense food is discreetly slipped into thousands of backpacks of children facing food insecurity in the Asheville area. And we owe it to our customers and their support of our mission to end child hunger. Thanks to their purchases, we’ve helped tens of thousands of hungry children receive free, healthy food to take home for the weekend.



Our story.

“I’ve learned that one of the truest ways to heal ourselves is through pure acts of kindness; not just for others, but for ourselves, too.” Fay Grant is a mother, activist and the founder of two sustainable give-back brands mini + meep and The Tote Project. Both of Fay’s brands are rooted in a desire to inspire positivity and give back meaningfully while also protecting the planet through sustainable and ethical manufacturing. Our founder recently shared her story with Darling Magazine.

KIND WORDS + testimonials

mini + meep perfectly reflects Fay’s values of ethical and sustainable practices. I am so impressed by how mini + meep is both socially responsible through giving back to children in need and ethically made in the United States.

We took one peek at the mini + meep shop and were blown away by the creative illustrations, positive messages and colorful palates of each tee, bib and onesie.
