Adrian and Pamela Santangelo have built Interpreting Technology to serve as a legacy to aid Skagit County and their global neighbors. It is an extension of Adrian and Pamela’s unwavering dedication to helping others.
On average, fully employed people spend a quarter of their lives each year in the office! The secret to success is treating work life the same as family life. This formula serves Interpreting Technology and the community by employing talented, eclectic people as part of their I.T. family. Adrian and Pamela foster an environment that caters to an engaged team of professionals who are hungry to solve challenges together with a bind that is as strong as any family.
How many times have you cringed at the thought of contacting your cable provider? We know that the computer and network service industry is fraught with customer service nightmares. Without our customer’s satisfaction, trust, and recommendations, we are nothing. Interpreting Technology values uncommon customer service as one of the highest priorities in our business.
We live in a disposable world, and recognize that our industry in particular is highly wasteful. There has been a trend within the last decade to dispose of technology as opposed to fixing equipment to make it last. This trend, due in part to cost effectiveness, has contributed to e-waste increases equaling a serious global problem.
Did you know that E-waste represents 2% of America’s trash in landfills, but it equals 70% of overall toxic waste. The extreme amount of lead in electronics alone causes damage in the central and peripheral nervous systems, the blood and the kidneys.
In addition to harming the human body, this global problem is affecting our water supply, air and soil quality, which directly leads to polluting Skagit County’s agricultural lands, as well as agricultural lands across the globe.
During this past decade, Adrian and Pamela Santangelo have helped the e-waste cause by participating in dialogue around new laws put in place to protect the environment from e-waste, and have helped recycle approximately 50 tons of e-waste since 2006.
While Interpreting Technology knows it cannot solve the world’s e-waste problem as a whole, it does serve as a soldier in the fight to minimize e-waste landfill contributions. Adrian and Pamela have been awarded the distinction as a Pioneer in the Towards Zero Waste Program with Sustainable Connections.
