Advantages: The square root of sod all.
Disadvantages: Harms the planet and your wallet.
For just over £1 you can disappoint yourself, pollute the environment and make your self angry. That's where these come in, at £1.09 you can do all of these things and waste your hard earned Sterling.
These bags are just disgraceful, their quality is shockingly unacceptable for bin bags and why they didn't just charge a tiny bit more and make them slightly better I don't know. These are incredibly flimsy and tear easily.
You have to be extremely careful when handling these bags to ensure that they don't catch on anything remotely sharp. If they do, they rip and eventually split completely. With plastic bags you can get a small tear and within minutes the whole thing is shredded. With these it's more like a few seconds.
The bags are incredibly thin and cannot take much weight. When using these I just started filling them half full to avoid spillages or the bags breaking. This is something I'd recommend particularly if you're a family with a lot of waste which builds up and ends up quite heavy.
They get holes in them too, just for no reason it seems other than the plastic is just under too much strain, it just randomly gets holes in it when in use. It's not a good idea to throw liquids in here anyway but especially not if they get holes constantly.
These bags are a very dark brown, almost jet black but cause they're not completely opaque this gives them that sort of dark brown tint in the sunlight. The plastic is quite smooth too but getting a good grip is impossible when they've split anyway, I just lift them up extra carefully with both hands.
These cannot be recycled either so if you've got some spare ones left over that you can't bare to use then they'll just go straight in the landfill. Very bad for the environment making them, and then again when they end up underground releasing toxins and gases. Fantastic Asda, how green of you.
Overall these are shockingly unacceptable and shouldn't be on the shelves. Once again this is a product that is considered value, but it's such poor quality that it's not actually value for money, and should be avoided.
Do the planet and your bank account a favour, don't buy these!!
Summary: Avoid. Avoid like rabies.
