Joe Arrigo, the Building Science Leader for Owens Corning, visits “Green is Good” to discuss the iconic building materials company’s new eco-projects.
Owens Corning is the original manufacturer of Fiberglas, the insulation material used in millions of homes worldwide. Arrigo points out that Fiberglas pays for itself 12 times over in the first year following installation. Now the company’s Energy Complete system, launched in 2009, is leading the energy-efficiency and insulation industries.
“On average, [Owens Corning] saves the homeowner 30% [on energy costs],” Arrigo reveals. “Domestically, energy costs are probably going to significantly go up in the near future, and we want to make sure that we’re making buildings more efficient.”
Paige Donner Owens Cornings Joe Arrigo and Paige DonnerPaige Donner wears many eco-hats: humanitarian, filmmaker, journalist, founder of the Green Blog Network and more. While Donner is based in Los Angeles, she travels all over the globe, investigating how the media conveys eco-news and awareness.

“We’re all together on this planet,” Donner says. “[We share] more similarities than differences. It’s not that you have to be perfectly green — none of us are going to be perfect. I think a lot of people think ‘green’ and become self-critical instead of self-praising.”
In particular, Donner is interested in the greening process in Hollywood — both on the production and awareness side. She says that more Hollywood stars are going green without being pigeonholed for it — a sign that the eco-movement is finally being embraced as a culturally accepted norm.
