I’d challenge you to think a little bit more about accessibility for all bodies — — While the handle method (as you described above) works for most people it doesn't work for everyone. I know you were focusing on how to reduce water consumption based on waster type but it would have been nice to have a more comprehensive view on the design. There are 2 main design features you should look at: 1) Most abled bodied people I know flush the toilet with their foot. People don’t wash their hands between using the toilet and flushing so people who cannot use their foot to flush, maybe they have mobility issues, have to put their dirty hands on the handle that other people’s foots or dirty hands have been on. 2)It’s hard in most stalls to get back to there to flush. You either have to turn around and reach back there with your foot or hand to move the handle. Maybe a sensor in the toilet that flushes automatically based on the weight in the toilet or something like that
