Description
A small blue plastic pocket/ pouch which acts as a rubbish receptacles. Comes with a paper card that sits inside the plastic pocket. It states "May we suggest... that you use this handy car-tidy in your car for scraps of paper and other odds and ends. Hang it on the choke knob or any place where it will be near at hand. KEEP NEW Zealand CLEAN.' Under this statement is a 'Teal' bird symbol.

Seems to have been given to passengers in-flight and then suggested they use it in their car while in New Zealand, therefore promoting New Zealand as 'clean and green.'
