Half Cut

HalfCut is the new face of the environmental movement, wearing the issue that half the world’s forests are destroyed. We encourage children, women and men to be courageous and wear their HalfCut look – shave, braid, colour and wear to help save the last remaining 50% forests globally and start the regeneration of what has been lost. HalfCut aims to protect crucial forests for habitat for threatened and endangered species, protect Traditional Owners land titles, mass tree planting projects and ultimately be part of the solution to the growing climate emergency, ensuring a safe future for all species on Earth.

HalfCut is a passionate non-for-profit with a focus on making fun & accessible campaigns that bring urgently needed funding for rainforest protection and regeneration. We’re a fundraising group with one aim – to save our planet from the Climate Crisis. Forests are one of our best bets so we save forests & plant what’s been cut down.

Every August we go #HalfCut to raise awareness and funds to protect existing forests and replant trees.
