Darin Pastor has worked as an executive in the finance industry for more than 20 years. In that time, Darin Pastor has supported a range of charitable causes, including Vitamin Angels, an organization that works to supply vitamin supplements to some of the world’s most vulnerable children.

Physicians point out that vitamin C is particularly important for children to maintain adequate health and growth. The vitamin is essential for proper development of the skin, muscle, and connective tissues.

An appropriate intake of vitamin C is also necessary for proper wound healing and the prevention of scurvy, a disease in which weakened capillaries produce severe bleeding. Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron, which plays a significant part in preventing and treating anemia.

While citrus fruits, strawberries, tomatoes, and certain other foods provide significant amounts of vitamin C, many children in conflict-ridden or under-resourced parts of the world lack access to these healthy foods. Without the supplements provided by Vitamin Angels, the children could remain severely malnourished.

With an eye on long-term economic growth and stability, Darin Pastor supports transitioning to emissions-free agricultural manufacturing plants fueled with renewable energy.

As the second largest driver of carbon dioxide emissions due mostly to beef and dairy production, the agricultural industry is overdue for a change if we are serious about keeping the planet livable and protecting biodiversity as well as property.

The major sources of renewable, clean energy are solar, wind, and biomass fuel (fuel which is made from crops like corn). For farmers and other agricultural workers who are interested in increasing their use of renewable energy, the federal government has set aside millions of dollars in incentives for you to invest in renewable systems with the passage of the 2002 Farm Bill.
