This NAIDOC Week, support remote communities by recycling for Purple House

Carol Fung By Carol Fung

Donate your Crunch credits to Purple House to get remote Indigenous dialysis patients home on country with family.

Purple House is an award-winning non-profit Indigenous health service supporting remote communities across the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.

Now operating 19 remote clinics and a mobile dialysis unit called the Purple Truck, Purple House is  getting patients back home so that families and culture can remain strong.

Run from its headquarters in a suburban house in Alice Springs, Purple House’s mission is ‘Making all our families well’. They now offer remote dialysis, social support, aged-care and NDIS services, and run a bush medicine social enterprise called Bush Balm

We will ensure that Walytja (family), Tjukurrpa (dreaming) Ngurra (country) and Kuunyi (compassion) are central to all that we do and say.

How it works.

Every bottle and can you recycle with Envirobank earns you 15 Crunch credits or 10 cents. You can donate your Crunch credits to Purple House in “Causes” in your Crunch account.

This NAIDOC Week 2022, Get up! Stand up! Show Up! Not only will your recycling save the environment by preserving water, conserving energy usage, diverting recyclable material from landfill and save carbon emissions pollution – it will also have a social impact, supporting an organisation that is caring for Country in community.

Sign in to your Crunch account to donate, or sign up for your free Crunch account. It’s quick and easy!

Keep recycling and support the Purple House.
