Yiyuan manufactures and markets toilets designed to avoid cross-contamination and whose patented technology can save up to 83% of water.

Yiyuan is the combination of two Chinese characters: ‘yi’ meaning fairness and ‘yuan’ meaning water source: ‘by giving our company this name, we want it to champion fair, responsible use of water resources through a breakthrough technology,’ says Chunhong Chen, the Managing Director of the company, whose brother designed their innovative product – a toilet that economises up to 83% of water compared with conventional 6-litre models.
