there are many reasons i want to try cloth diapering after my baby is born, and obviously the environment is one of the them. using a diaper pail with a plastic bag liner and zip lock baggies on the road still seems wasteful to me. is there a better way to store soiled cloth diapers until you are ready to wash? something reusable, waterproof and washable?
there are lots of companies that make wet bags (for in the diaper bag) and pail liners out of PUL (same material used in a lot of diaper covers).

Yes, that would be wasteful and gross!
As the PP said there are TONS of companies that make wet bags, hanging bags, or pail liners. Just look up "wet bag" on etsy or look on any cloth diaper site. They make lots of cute prints and many different sizes (one for cloth wipes, one for diaper bag, bigger for longer outings, etc).

We never bothered with a liner for the nappy bucket, we just stuck them straight it. The bucket had a lid so no smell issues. I'd give it a quick wipe out with an old wash cloth after sticking the nappies in the washer, then throw the cloth in with them.
We had a PUL wet bag for bringing wet nappies home. I preferred that to just using a plastic bag, mainly because as I only had one wet bag I'd need to take it next time we went out so I rarely forgot wet nappies in the car. On the occasions I used a plastic bag they tended to get forgotten.
I made 4 PUL pail liners for DD. They are now almost 2.5 years old and are still going strong for her little brother. We also have some wetbags for out and about.

We have two pail liners (made from PUL like covers) and love them. Elastic on top so they stay in the pail, then hold them over the washer to dump everything in and throw them in too. Never have to touch the old dirties. We have Wammies, but Planet Wise is another great brand.
For on the go, wet bags are perfect and come in a huge variety of prints. The best have a zipper and most have a cotton print outside and waterproof inside. My favourite are Monkey Foot Design. I have quite a variety of sizes, but most of the time I use one that holds two diapers. I also take them to swimming to hold our wet stuff. Some people skip the diaper pail and use a large wet bag instead.
